Two men have died in a horror incident where a car was driven off a cliff at a remote WA beach.

At about 3.45am on Sunday, the grey Nissan Patrol was driven over a cliff on a private property about ten kilometres north of Horrocks Beach in Perth’s Midwest region.

The crash killed two men, both aged 22. A third man, 21, was taken to Royal Perth Hospital for treatment of his injuries.

It is understood the 21-year-old clambered up the cliff from the vehicle to raise the alarm – and potentially had been the only one wearing a seatbelt.

A St John Ambulance spokesman said they had received a call at 3.50am on Sunday morning, while the Department of Fire and Emergency Services said a call had been received at 3.58am.

The RAC rescue helicopter was deployed to assist emergency services at the scene, with volunteers from Geraldton, Kalbarri and Northampton all at the scene.

Flipped on its roof, the vehicle remained lying at the bottom of the cliff as emergency services combed through the wreckage.

Major Crash investigators are conducting an examination of the scene and are appealing for anyone with information regarding this matter to call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or report the information online at www.crimestopperswa.com.au.

A report is being prepared for the coroner.
