A report is being prepared for the coroner following a glider crash which resulted in the death of a 64-year-old man in Towrang yesterday.

Emergency services were called to land adjacent to Carrick Road, Towrang, around 2pm following reports that a glider had crashed and two men were severely injured.

Police have been told that the glider, carrying two Queanbeyan men, was launched into the air with the assistance of a winch.

Moments later witnesses observed the glider bank to the left and crash into the ground.

A number of witnesses went to the aid of the two men, however, the 64 year old suffered significant injuries and died at the scene.

Ambulance officers took a 68-year-old man to Goulburn Base Hospital. He has since been transferred to Canberra Hospital suffering serious leg injuries.

Police from Goulburn Local Area Command attended and established a crime scene.

Specialist officers from the Aviation Branch and Crime Scene officers also attended and continue to investigate the incident.

A "crime scene" - I hate to speculate and even pre-empt any sad chat about such a tragic thing - but why a crime scene?

My condolences to family and all at Goulburn.
