Father and young boy die in horror snack while police investigate speed

Tragic crash claims the life of a boy, 7, and a young father-of-three – while the police are investigating whether their car crashed past a red light

  • A man, 21 and a boy, 7, died after an RAV4 T-boned Ford Ute on Wednesday
  • The driver of the RAV4 is assumed to be speeding and has a red light
  • A woman, 24 and a man, 42, were taken to the hospital in critical condition

A seven-year-old boy was one of two people who were killed in a horror car accident in Darwin overnight.

A 21-year-old father of three, Wade Williams, traveled as a passenger in the same car and was also killed.

A woman [24] who was driving and a 42-year-old man driving the other car were taken to Royal Darwin Hospital with serious injury.

It is thought that one car is speeding and has turned a red light when it bumped into the other one in Berrimah and just before midnight on Wednesday.

Traffic and street deviations had been knocked over and the area was closed to traffic for much of Thursday.

An out of service police officer on his way home from work was the first on the scene when he happened to pass the accident.

He helped until the St. John & # 39; s ambulance ambulance arrived, said NT police commander Matt Hollamby.

& # 39; The death of someone is a tragedy, but the death of children is really very hard to take & he said to reporters.

& # 39; Fatal accidents can be measured in millimeters and milliseconds and we only ask that people on the road take care of the laws, do not take risks and minimize the chance of a crash.

No driver has been spoken yet, he said, because they are being treated in the hospital.

Major crash detectives are investigating and believing that speed and performing a red light were factors that were based on camera images and that could involve costs.

There were 13 deaths on the roads of the Northern Territory this year, compared to 21 at the same time last year.
