The woman’s father has been notified and a family member has been interviewed, the spokesman said.

“We are treating this as a tragic accident and it is important to us that the community knows that,” he said.

Mr McManus said it appeared the woman was struck by the vehicle because of the angle of the roadway.

“There is a number of lanes that are not straight and the vehicle did not have a level of visibility,” he told ABC Local Radio.

“So it was a bit of a head-on collision, so there were people coming from the other direction.”

Police said they were investigating whether there were any other road users involved.
