Driver critical after Kwinana Freeway rollover

UPDATE: A 44-year-old Pinjarra man remains in a critical condition at Royal Perth Hospital (RPH) after his vehicle rolled on the Kwinana Freeway.

It took emergency crews more than two hours to stabilize the man before he could be airlifted to RPH.

The man was the sole occupant of a white Great Wall wagon which left the road, hit the media strip and rolled a number of times before coming to a stop approximately one kilometre south of the Lakes Road turn-off.

Northbound motorists faced lengthy delays as the freeway was closed to allow for the man to be airlifted.
