NT Police have charged a 17-year-old female, who they allege had been driving under the influence of drugs, over the fatal Berrimah car crash that killed a 57-year-old woman who was on her way to work on February 13.
The multiple vehicle crash occurred at the intersection of Tiger Brennan Drive at Berrimah Road involving four vehicles that were left across the four lanes of both roads, two inbound and two outbound.
Reports at the time indicated the rear-end collision happened between a ute driven by the 17-year-old female which was left with damage to the front, a black Nissan Dualis with the boot smashed in and two other smaller vehicles, a green Hyundai i20 with minor damage to the back left wheel and the blue Mazda 2 left on the inbound lane where the woman died.
NT Police on the scene after the crash happened said that it appeared the utility had rear-ended a car and a chain reaction occurred where the three other vehicles were rear-ended.
The road remained closed for about nine hours after the incident.
The female teen faces multiple charges including driving a motor vehicle causing death, driving without due care, driving with prohibited drug in body, and driving under the influence of drugs.
It was not mentioned which type of drug was found in the teen.
She has been served notice to appear in court on September 25.
