Police say emergency services were called to the highway in Woolundunga, 13km south-east of Port Augusta, about 7pm following reports of a crash between an Isuzu ute and Hyundai sedan.

The driver of the Hyundai died at the scene while the driver of the ute, a 57-year-old man from Woolundunga, was taken to Port Augusta hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

The Augusta Highway has reopened after it was closed for several hours as Major Crash Investigators examined the circumstances surrounding the crash.

The crash takes South Australia’s road toll this year to 13, compared to 20 at the same time in 2021.
