Speed may be a factor in fatal crash at Rous, police say

SPEED may have been a factor in a crash that killed a Dalwood man at Rous on Tuesday, police have said.

The man died after being involved in a single vehicle crash on Rous Road on Tuesday night.

Skid marks on roadside grass unveiled the red earth where the 25-year-old driver lost control on a sweeping left-hand bend on Rous Rd.

Richmond Local Area Command Inspector Wayne Crotty said emergency services were called to the scene about 8.30pm.

Insp Crotty said they found a blue Subaru Impreza WRX on its roof and the driver, who was the only person in the car, trapped.

"The Subaru has travelled along the grass and impacted with several cement posts, a wire fence and a timber railing," he said.

"The vehicle has rolled and come to rest on its roof."

Insp Crotty said the Subaru was extensively damaged in the crash.

"It appears that speed may have been a factor in the incident."

Police, paramedics, NSW Fire and Rescue, SES and NSW RFS responded to the incident.

A report on the crash will be prepared for the coroner.
