Two people dead after Indian Ocean Drive crash

TWO people are dead after an SUV collided with a bus on Indian Ocean Drive yesterday afternoon.

About 1.50pm a Nissan Xtrail and a passenger bus collided on Indian Ocean Drive, near the intersection of Pinnacles Road, in Nambung.

Police said it appeared the Nissan, with three people on board, had turned from Pinnacles Drive onto Indian Ocean Drive, hitting a TransWA bus, carrying the driver and 34 passengers.

The collision caused the Nissan to roll, coming to rest on its roof.

The driver of the Nissan Xtrail died at the scene.

The two passengers were conveyed to Royal Perth Hospital by the RAC Rescue Helicopter.

One passenger has since died and the other is in a critical but stable condition.

St John Ambulance officers treated some of the bus occupants at the scene for minor injuries.

Inquiries into the crash are continuing.

Anyone who witnessed the crash, saw either the Nissan X-Trail or the TransWA bus prior to the crash, has dash-cam footage or has any information, is asked to call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or report online at www.crimestopperswa.com.au.
