A woman has died after the car she was driving collided with a B-Double and then apparently veered onto the wrong side of the Great Eastern Highway before colliding head-on with a car towing a caravan.

Major Crash officers are now investigating the tragic accident which happened near Northam in Western Australia on Sunday.

The 20-year-old driver of a Fiat Punto sustained significant injury in the crash and, despite being rushed to Northam Hospital, she died a short time later. The 74-year-old caravanner who was driving a VW Touareg sustained minor injury and was taken to hospital and later discharged. The 31-year-old driver of the road train was not injured in the incident.

Police say the grey Fiat Punto was travelling westerly along the highway when it collided with a red B-Double Road Train Car Carrier travelling in the same direction.

The Fiat then travelled to the incorrect side of the carriageway and collided head-on with a silver VW Touareg that was towing a caravan.

Major Crash investigators are seeking witnesses who may have seen the crash, or any of the vehicles involved around the time of the crash.
