Truck driver dies after Eyre Highway rollover

A man has died after the truck he was driving on Eyre Highway near the Western Australian border rolled over on Saturday.

Police received reports of a truck rollover about five kilometres east of the border just after 4.30pm.

Sadly, the 68-year-old man from Western Australia died at the scene.

South Australian Police and Western Australian Police both attended the scene, as Major Crash investigations made their way to the area late on Saturday to examine the circumstances surrounding the crash.

Eyre Highway was blocked in both directions for a number of hours, but reopened on Sunday morning.

The flow of traffic is being managed at the scene and delays are expected.

Motorists are being advised to utilise Ceduna as a rest stop prior to crossing the border due to extensive delays at Border Village.

The man's death is the 77th life lost on South Australian roads compared with 71 at the same time last year.
