A WOMAN in her 70s was tragically killed on Monday when her car rolled down an embankment near Darlington Point.
About 4pm on Monday, the Hyundai sedan was travelling west along the Sturt Highway when it left the road, travelled down the slight embankment and rolled.
Paramedics, police and other emergency services rushed to the scene, but found there was little they could do to help the woman.
The cause of the accident is unknown at this stage and occurred on a straight stretch of road, with only one vehicle involved.
The woman, who is believed to have lived interstate, was the sole occupant of the vehicle.
NSW Ambulance Service Inspector Markus Zarins said the woman was deceased when paramedics arrived and it was believed she had died in the crash.
"Any time we attend a motor vehicle accident on our highways is a potentially distressing time for all concerned and it is a particular tragedy when someone is killed on our roads," Inspector Zarins said.
"I can only urge that people are mindful of road conditions."
Investigations into the cause of the crash are ongoing and police are urging anyone who witnessed the collision or circumstances leading up to it to come forward.
Crime scene investigators attended the scene and a report will be prepared for the coroner.
Griffith Highway Patrol Sergeant Steve Pidgeon said this was only the second road fatality in the region this year, after former AFL player Merv Neagle was killed in August when his grain truck rolled over near Tharbogang.
Anyone with information about this incident is urged to call Griffith Police on 6969 4299 or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
