Woman Killed In Freak Lawnmower Accident

A WOMAN has been killed while walking to work after she was struck in the head by a flying piece of steel in a freak mowing accident.

The 42-year-old woman was walking along the footpath on Eyre St, North Ward just after 8am this morning when she was hit by a piece of pipe.

It's believed a slasher being towed by a small tractor ran over the pipe which had been hidden in long grass.

The tractor was mowing a vacant block next to a Liquor Land bottlestore and was believed to be operated by a private contractor.

An ambulance was called at 8.12am but the woman died instantly.

It was initially thought a mower blade caused the fatal injuries.

A distraught witness described the tragic event as a ‘freak accident’.

Investigations are continuing.
