Fatal crash at Nuriootpa

76 year old Tanunda woman, Mrs Jean Margaret Steinert, was tragically killed and another driver left with minor injuries, following a two-car crash on March 28.

Just after 3.20 p.m. Police and emergency services were called to Barossa Valley Way, near Seppeltsfield Road between Nuriootpa and Tanunda.

A blue 4WD with a trailer smashed into a white station wagon, with the impact of the crash ripping the 4WD’s bumper bar and caving it into the side of the wagon.

A rescue helicopter was initially called when the driver was trapped, but was turned around before it arrived at the scene.

Major Crash Investigators are examining the circumstances of the crash.
