Car hits bus in fatal M1 crash

ONE PERSON has died and two are in hospital following a three-vehicle accident on the Pacific Motorway at Yatala last night.

Police are investigating the circumstances surrounding the crash, with early information suggesting a sedan hit a parked small bus at around 8.45pm, before then colliding with another car.

It’s believed the sedan was heading north on the M1 when it hit the rear of the bus, which was also pointed northbound, but stationary at the time.


It’s not clear if the bus was in a driving lane, or in the shoulder.

The passenger of the sedan sustained fatal injuries and died at the scene.

The driver of the sedan and the person behind the wheel of the third vehicle were both transported to the Princess Alexandra Hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Anyone who may have witnessed the accident is urged to contact Police or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
