Father charged over son’s death after Two Rocks crash

A FATHER, alleged to have been driving on a licence suspension, has been charged over a crash that killed his son in Two Rocks on Friday.

Police allege the 40-year-old man was driving dangerously in a white Ford Falcon sedan heading north that collided with a southbound Holden Astra on Two Rocks Road about 7.05pm.

A 20-year-old passenger in the Ford died at the scene and another 20-year-old male passenger received minor injuries.

Yanchep Sergeant Jason Macander said the crash had “affected a lot of locals”.

“We spoke to someone (on Monday) who was one of the first on the scene,” he said.

“We (police) are used to going to (crashes) but members of the public aren’t.”

A 23-year-old woman, who was driving the Holden, was taken to Sir Charles Gairdner Hospital with life-threatening injuries.

Officers charged a Two Rocks man with dangerous driving causing death, dangerous driving occasioning grievous bodily harm and driving with a court-suspended licence.

He is due to appear in Joondalup Magistrates Court on October 26.
