THREE separate crashes on Tasmanian roads yesterday left two people dead and one man in a critical condition in the Royal Hobart Hospital last night.
The first fatal incident occurred in Leven Street, Ulverstone, when a white Holden Commodore sedan crashed into a building at low speed about 9.20am.
Police and witnesses tried to revive the 41-year-old man before ambulance officers arrived, but he could not be resuscitated.
However, it is believed the man died from a suspected medical condition.
A 96-year-old woman was killed in a single-vehicle crash on Nubeena Road, Taranna, in the state's South.
Police said they were alerted to the crash through a telephone call about noon from a Parks and Wildlife Service officer.
Police said the cause of the crash remained unclear and that a report would be prepared for the coroner.
Meanwhile, a motorcycle driver was taken to the Royal Hobart Hospital in a critical condition after he collided with a car on Lake Leake Road about 3.15pm.
Police say the crash occured on the Lake Leake Road, about 20km south-east of Campbell Town.
According to police, the motorcycle, ridden by a 51-year-old man from New South Wales, collided with a 2009 Toyota Yaris, which was being driven by a 65-year-old woman from Bicheno.
The man was taken to the Launceston General Hospital in a critical condition. The woman was also taken to hospital with minor injuries.
Police say they believe speed is considered to be a factor.
Anyone who witnessed the crash is asked to contact Northern Crash Investigation Services on 6336 3936 or 6336 3701.
Then just before 5pm yesterday, police were called to a single-vehicle crash on the Bass Highway near the Illawarra Road connector.
Police say that a Ford sedan collided with the armco railing after a tyre blew out.
The male driver was trapped and had to be cut free. He was taken to the LGH, where he was treated for fractured ribs and later released.
Four other occupants in the Ford were treated at the scene but there were no significant injuries.
