Fatigue sends driver off-road near Murrumbateman

Police say they believe fatigue was part of the reason a driver ended up down an embankment off the Barton Highway at Jeir, pre-dawn on Sunday.

About 4.40am on June 16, a vehicle driven by a 24-year-old from Murrumbateman veered off the highway, hit a crash barrier and landed in an embankment.

The female driver was taken to a Canberra hospital for treatment before being discharged later that day, said Inspector Matthew Hinton of Yass Police Station.

"Fatigue is considered a factor," Inspector Hinton said about the cause of the crash.

Officers of the Hume Police District are imploring drivers to adopt the message of 'stop, revive, survive' following the highway's latest crash.
