A TEENAGER has died after the car he was driving crashed into a tree in South Australia’s mid north.

Police say the 19-year-old male died when his car collided with a tree along the Barrier Highway at Hanson, south of Burra, at around 11am on Sunday.


He was the sole occupant of the car.

The Barrier Highway was still closed between the township of Hanson and Acacia Road, two kilometres north of the town, late this afternoon.

The man’s death takes the State’s road toll to 91 compared with 83 at the same time last year.
