Driver Responsible for Tresco Death Investigated By Police
A 31-year-old Swan Hill man is assisting police with their investigations after he turned himself in following yesterday's deadly smash on Tresco West Road.
Swan Hill Police interviewed the man last night, after he fled from the scene of the crash that killed his passenger and injured another.
No further details have been released as to whether or not he'll be charged for any offences.
The Mitsubishi sedan he was driving was alleged to have swerved off the road to avoid a fallen tree, consequently hitting another tree on the side of the road around 7am yesterday morning.
The statewide road toll stands at 48, 8 more than this time last year.
