A MAN is helping police with their inquiries into a single-vehicle crash off Boyer Rd last night that resulted in a car ending up in a dam. Sergeant Kelly Taylor of Tasmania Police said emergency services had been notified around 9.20pm on Friday of a car crash off Boyer Rd, east of the Pegasus Drive intersection.
“Witnesses reported a vehicle had run off Boyer Rd into a dam [but] were unable to confirm if there were people trapped inside the vehicle,” Sgt Taylor said. “On police arrival, the vehicle was completely submerged in the dam.”
The police dive squad, forensic services and the Derwent Valley SES were called to the scene but poor visibility prevented the divers from confirming if there were people trapped in the vehicle.
“The vehicle was recovered from the dam and it was confirmed there was no-one was inside,” Sgt Taylor said. “A male person was located near the scene suffering from hypothermia. He was treated by Tasmania Ambulance and subsequently transported to RHH for treatment.”
Sgt Taylor said the man was assisting police with their inquiries.
