St John Ambulance paramedics transported a 33-year-old male with suspected neck injuries to Katherine Hospital this morning following a vehicle roll over near Pine Creek.
A St John Ambulance spokeswoman said paramedics transported the injured man from the Pine Creek Health Centre early this morning.
“Paramedics took him to Katherine Hospital in a stable condition this morning,” the spokeswoman said.
The crash occurred about a kilometre out of Pine Creek towards Katherine at around 8am.
A NT Police spokeswoman said the two vehicle crash caused one of the cars to roll off the road.
One caution has been issued to a driver for crossing double lines and another caution was issued to a driver of second vehicle for driving carelessly, the NT Police spokeswoman said.
Most recently, four people were confirmed dead in a car crash on the Kakadu Highway.
Two men and a woman died at the scene and another woman died on the way to hospital, NT Police believed high speed and alcohol were definite factors in the crash.
A 33-year-old female was the sole survivor of the crash. Following the crash, she walked from the scene and flagged down a passing motorist.
“These tragic deaths bring the 2018 road toll to 42 compared to 23 this time last year,” a NT spokeswoman said.
Commander Tony Fuller said one death on our roads is one too many.
“In the last week five Territorians did not make it home to their families. At this rate we will double the number of people killed on our roads last year.
“We urge all road users to take care. Enough is enough” he said.
