Newman man dies in 4WD rollover

Police are investigating a crash near Newman last weekend in which a 25-year-old man died.
The Newman died on March 1 from injuries he received when an unregistered red Mitsubishi Pajero wagon rolled over on an unsealed road near Parnpajinya Aboriginal community, north-east of Newman.
The vehicle landed on its wheels but later caught fire when the other occupants in the car attempted to drive it to get medical assistance.
A female passenger was flown to Perth to have surgery on her jaw, while another man suffered minor injuries after he was flung from the vehicle.
Police have charged a 23-year-old Newman man with traffic offences that are not related to the death of the 25-year-old man.
Investigators would like to hear from anyone who has information regarding the crash, or who saw the unregistered red Mitsubishi Pajero being driven in the Newman area on Saturday, March 1.
Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
