Time to belt up Third of fatalities easy to prevent SPECIALREPORT: P19-23 ByNADJAHAINKE THE simple act of putting on a seat belt would have prevented almost one-third of the deaths on Territory roads in 2009. Last years road toll was the lowest in Territory history. But figures obtained by the NT News showed a higher percentage of Territorians died in road crashes because they failed to buckle up than in previous years. Every third fatality was related to a driver or passenger not wearing a seat belt. The Transport Department figures showed 10 out of 31 deaths were attributed to not wearing a seat belt. Most of the victims were men, of all ages, driving in rural regions in the NT. Women only accounted for 2 per cent while every second fatality was an indigenous person. NT fire and rescue district officer Rob Trewartha said he was shocked by the statistics. Mr Trewartha, who has been in the job for 32 years, said fire and rescue workers and police had been pushing the message for years. Poor attitudes like it wont happen to me or its only a short trip are all too common in the Territory, he said. The statistics also showed nearly 300 people have died in the past five years a yearly average of 53.2 deaths. ByNADJAHAINKE Man killed in another NT rollover A MAN has been killed in another single vehicle crash on a Territory highway. The fatality yesterday came less than a day after another man died in a horror rollover. It is understood the latest victim was thrown from his white Ford utility after it rolled several times before hitting a small tree about 9am. Southern Traffic Operations Sergeant Conan Robertson said it appeared the man was not wearing a seat belt. The Northern Territory News understands the man was travelling north on the Stuart Highway about 70km south of Alice Springs when he lost control of his car . The vehicle left the road and its actually crashed through quite a few saltbushes, rolling over, and eventually landing back on its tyres, Sgt Robertson said. No other passengers were in the car at the time of the crash. Stuarts Well Caravan Park manager Jim Cotterill was one of the first people to arrive at the crash scene. He said the car was severely damaged and the man was already dead when he arrived. He was thrown from the vehicle, he said. It is understood an overseas couple, who were among the first to pass the scene, rushed to the Stuarts Well Caravan Park to report the crash. The tourists involved were simply travelling by shortly after the crash must have happened, Mr Cotterill said. They came here to use my phone to ring the emergency number. Sgt Robertson said last night it was too early to say whether speed or alcohol was a factor in the crash. But he said the death was a reminder to all Territorians to wear seat belts. In any kind of motor vehicle a c c i d e n t s e s p e c i a l l y rollovers they can be a wonderful way of keeping people with their cars and protecting them, he said.
