An Australian motor vehicle accident has claimed the life of a Vernon woman.

Hailey Woon, 19, died in a single-vehicle accident 10 kilometres south of Canowindra, 304 kilometres west of Sydney, Nov. 9.

“It appears a Toyota Seca sedan was travelling northbound when it veered onto the gravel edge of the roadway near a sweeping right hand bend,” states a release from the New South Wales Police Force.

“The vehicle crossed to the wrong side of the road before striking a power pole.”

Woon, a Fulton grad, was located by other motorists and attempts to revive her were unsuccessful.

Police will prepare a report for the coroner outlining the circumstance surrounding the accident.
