Fatal smash


A man is dead after a fatal crash on the Tasman Highway around 15 kilometres west of Scottsdale.

He had apparently lost control and hit trees on a right-hand bend.

Despite the best efforts of Ambulance Tasmania he was pronounced dead at the scene.

Police haven't released the make and model; it takes the state's road toll to 27 for the year.
