Dear Forum Users,
We have posted this on behalf of the WA Police and hope that you will respond appropriately. An official media release, is now published on the site under Press Releases.

They are also specifically asking for informaton from people in our Forum who have attended that crossing in particular:
(1) Have you attended the crossing in the 2 weeks leading up to the
tragedy? What were your perceptions of the water?
(2) Has anyone crossed this crossing successfully with a water level above
1 metre?
(3) Has anyone with a 1998 Jeep Cherokee suffered problems in water
crossings? If so what depth water caused the problem?

Please make your responses to pd09549@police.wa.gov.au

This [ View Image]picture is the approach to the crossing on the side that the vehicle attempted.ExplorOz

Note that the crossing is of the Blackwood River NOT the Warren River as stated in the press release.

Mad Dog Morgan - it must be a problem on your end I'm sorry - maybe you don't have a pdf reader or something?? Or you need to refresh your browser. It is certainly there and was tested before posting.ExplorOz

the link works but the document contains formatting problems for acrobat v 4.0 or earlier.....download the latest version at http://www.pacific.adobe.com/products/acrobat/readstep2.html
then enter your operating system and away you go.
sorry i cant make it a link guys and gals.......im just not that puter literate and yes i did read the stuff down the bottom of the box but it may as well be greek
but if you copy the address and paste to internet explorer......need i say more
maybe one of the forumites here with the smarts can fix it.

always a shame to hear about fellow 4wders coming to grief

dont mean to be rude but is this really appropriate as all answers given may ad d to speculation.
couldnt they do this another way?
maybe i hate to think of the legal implications (not to any one here )but to some one who may not deserve it ?
after all they are individual opinions ?
not everyone has the same talent in regards to water crossings or 4wd in general?
sometimes a succesful crossing can be just lucky?

whatever the outcome i feel greatly for the families involved and any person assisting investigations .

Never rely on luck for attempting difficult 4wd manouvers or you will surely come unstuck. I train my people to use Judgement, attitude, concentration, knowledge, foresight and skill. Define an accident .....98% of the time accidents are driver error.Cairns Offroad Training & Tours
