Boy, 14, charged over horrific crash that killed SA mother

A 14-year-old boy has been arrested and charged over a horrific hit-and-run crash which claimed the life of a woman in Adelaide.

The fatal crash happened just after 6.30am on Sunday, when a stolen white Mitsubishi Pajero collided with a Nissan Micra at Parafield.

The driver of the Micra, a 40-year-old mother and nurse from Mawson Lakes, died on impact in the crash.


Following investigations, around 3.30am this morning police arrested a 14-year-old boy from Paralowie. He has been charged with manslaughter and refused bail to appear in the Adelaide Youth Court later today.

Another boy, aged 13, was arrested at 11.00am and is currently being interviewed by police.

Detectives say the investigation into the outstanding offenders is ongoing and further arrests are expected.

The incident has also been declared a Commissioner’s Inquiry, which is a formal process to ensure significant incidents involving police are investigated thoroughly and independently.
