It is at least the fourth crash in the vicinity of Tyndale during the current school holiday period.

The recent high incidence of motor vehicle accidents in the vicinity of Tyndale has prompted residents to voice their concerns and urge motorists to exercise caution on our roads.

After campaigning for years to get a reduction in the speed limit at Tyndale from 100kmh to 80kmh, Tyndale Progression Association president Terry Radford is at a loss as to what more can be done to reduce the number of crashes and near misses on the single-lane stretch of highway..

"We petitioned many times to get that speed limit reduced, and while there have been people getting killed there's also been plenty of near misses," Mr Radford said.

"You'd be surprised by how many near misses there are here, but they don't seem to get counted like the crashes do.

"It's the drivers' fault though, you can't blame the road."
