Investigators have laid additional charges against the ACT driver of a car involved in a fatal crash in the Southern Highlands last year.

Officers from the Crash Investigation Unit (CIU) have been investigating the two-vehicle crash that occurred on Binda Road at Binda, 22 km north of Crookwell, at 11:15 am on 7 December 2019.

A passenger in the Toyota, a 62-year-old woman from Flinders, died when the 4WD rolled. The driver, a 63-year-old man, suffered multiple injuries and was taken to Canberra Hospital in a serious condition.
