A young man from Aldinga Beach has died after the car he was driving hit a tree at Myponga on Sunday night, March 7.

Emergency services were called to Pages Flat Road, between Higgs Road and Rogers Road, just before 10pm, to find a Toyota Corolla had smashed into a tree.

Sadly, the 18-year-old who was driving the car had passed away at the scene.

The road was closed until about 5am on Monday morning as Major Crash Investigators examined the scene and the road was cleared.

The man's death is the 22nd life lost on South Australian roads this year, compared to 18 at the same time last year.
