Police have charged a 20-year-old man in connection with a fatal traffic crash in Orange Grove overnight.

A 21-year-old woman was killed when her car was struck by another vehicle as she tried to turn right into Gosnells Road West from Tonkin Highway.

The crash happened around 10:00 pm last night.

It is alleged the driver of the other car fled the scene, later presenting to hospital with injuries.

He has now been charged with failing to stop and failing to report a traffic crash, and will face court in Armadale later this month.

The total road toll for the year now stands at 26.

That is 16 more than for the same time last year.
