An 84-year-old O'Connor man has been killed in a two-car collision in Bruce on Wednesday morning.
The man was the passenger in a blue Toyota Corolla Seca, being driven by an elderly woman.
Police said the Toyota was travelling east along Belconnen Way when it collided with a green Mitsubishi Lancer about 10.10am.
The scene of the fatal crash.
The woman received serious injuries in the crash, and was taken to Calvary Hospital. She was in a stable condition on Wednesday afternoon. The man died at the scene despite attempts ACT Police and paramedics to revive him.
The driver of the Lancer received minor injuries and was also taken to Calvary Hospital.
Acting Superintendent Rod Anderson said police were investigating whether one of the vehicles ran a red light, and urged anyone who witnessed the incident to contact Crime Stoppers.
"Given the size of the intersection it appears that both vehicles were almost had a head-on, one vehicle travelling towards the city and the other vehicle crossing into its path turning right onto the Gungahlin Drive extension," he said.
He said it was too early to say whether any charges would be laid.
Diversions are in place, and the intersection was expected to be closed for some time.
ACT Policing's collision, investigation and reconstruction team are investigating the cause of the collision, and will prepare a report for the coroner.
The death brings the state's road toll to two for the year.
"We just implore people to drive safely and stick to the road rules," Superintendent Anderson said.
