Fatal Bass Highway crash

Another death on Tasmania's roads and the Bass Highway is again the scene of the tragedy.

At around 5.30pm Thursday, a 54 year old Devonport man was killed when his Nissan Navara crossed to wrong side of the road and hit a Hilux coming the other way at Sassafras near Parramatta Creek.

The 44 year old man driving the Hilux was taken to the Royal Hobart Hospital hospital by the rescue helicopter with serious injuries.
