A tour bus that was travelling through remote central Australia flipped over, causing one passenger to pass away and eight others to sustain serious injuries.
On Monday afternoon at about 3:30, the bus was involved in an accident close to Hermannsburg, which is approximately 125 kilometres west of Alice Springs.
There were a total of eight passengers transported to the Alice Springs Hospital, four of whom were in critical condition.
According to the Northern Territory Police, the individual was pronounced dead at the scene.
According to Craig Garraway, who is the operations manager for St. John NT, it is thought that there were 21 people on board the bus.
Medical personnel and emergency medical technicians rushed to the scene at a clinic in a remote indigenous community.
A larger number of medical staff members came all the way from Alice Springs.
Investigations into the incident are being carried out by the NT police serious crash unit and NT Worksafe respectively.
Hermannsburg is a small community with a population of about 600 people. It is also known as Ntaria.
It’s recognized for being the home of renowned Aboriginal artist Albert Namatjira, and it’s a National Trust-listed historic site because of its ancient German-style white mission buildings that date back to the 1870s.
