A 29-YEAR-OLD woman died in a single vehicle crash on the Guyong Road near Blayney early yesterday.
The woman was travelling in a white Holden Commodore with her two young children in the back when she crashed just before 9am.
Chifley Local Area Command duty officer Inspector Colin Cracknell said emergency services were called to the scene and closed the road around 9.05am.
Inspector Cracknell said the woman and her children were from Blayney and driving towards her parents’ house which was close by.
“It looks like she crested the hill, lost control of the vehicle and hit the embankment,” he said.
“The vehicle then rolled a number of times and the driver was ejected from the vehicle through the driver’s door.”
Inspector Cracknell said the woman received fatal injuries and is believed to have died instantly.
The two children in the vehicle, aged one and four, sustained no injuries but were taken to Orange hospital for observation.
The Guyong Road remained closed until 1pm as police, forensic officers, police rescue, NSW Ambulance, Fire and Rescue NSW and the Rural Fire Service worked at the scene.
Inspector Cracknell said there was evidence the woman had been wearing a seatbelt at the time and that police did not think speed had been a major factor.
He said police were seeking assistance from anyone who may have witnessed the crash or seen the car before the accident.
“We believe there may have been another vehicle on the road that wasn’t involved in the accident that may be able to assist with inquiries.”
Police will prepare a report for the coroner once investigations have been completed.
Anyone who has information on the accident is urged to contact Bathurst police on 6332 8699 or Blayney police on 6368 9599.
