Police probe crash-scene

‘A 37-year-old woman who died in a crash at Dilston yesterday morning had three stab wounds to the chest.

The woman’s Hyundai was found about 70 metres from the East Tamar Highway about 5.50 am.

A kitchen-type knife was found embedded in the woman’s chest.

She died at the scene after police arrived without speaking to them.

Detective-Inspector Mike Otley said police were investigating whether the wounds were self-inflicted.

“We are treating it as a sudden death,” he said.

It is believed there are no suspicious circumstances.’
