Northern Territory Police are calling for witnesses to a crash near Larrimah on Monday in which two people died.

Detectives from the Major Crash Investigation Unit are investigating the cause of the crash and establishing timelines.

Detective Sergeant Jeshua Kelly said, “The single vehicle crash happened on the Stuart Highway about 10km south of Larrimah. A passing truck driver noticed the vehicle off the road around 6:30pm on Monday 1 August and reported it to police, but we don’t know exactly when the crash happened."

“It’s possible that other motorists passed the scene without realising it was a crash, so we’re asking anyone who was travelling in the area on Monday to think back, check your dash-cams, and contact police if you remember anything about a grey Mitsubishi Pajero on the eastern side of the highway south of Larrimah.”

Please contact Police on 131 444 and quote reference 10076834.
