Danny Westhoff Cause of death

We regret having to let you know that Danny Westhoff died in a motorcycle accident at Vine Vale. Many said Danny Westhoff had a friendly personality.

According to Assistant Commissioner Parrott, Mr. Westhoff’s motorcycle crashed into a tree at about 5:30 p.m. after leaving the road. It had been a “horror weekend on South Australian roads,” according to Assistant Commissioner Parrott.

Assistant Commissioner Parrott said,

“This continues an absolutely horror trend on South Australian roads so far this year, with 35 lives lost now in just two-and-a-half months,” 

“That is a devastating figure in terms of road safety outcomes, but it is incredibly devastating for the families who have lost loved ones on our roads so far this year.”

The state had recorded its second-worst road toll for the start of the year in a decade, according to police, who urged caution last month. The road toll, according to Assistant Commissioner Parrott, has “frustrated and disappointed” officers.

He said,

“The road toll this year is insane, it’s absolutely insane,”

“And I don’t understand why people aren’t getting the message.”

Australian rules footballer Matthew Westhoff had a brief stint playing for Port Adelaide in the AFL.

With his brother Justin, Matthew played for the Port Adelaide Football Club. He was delisted after the 2011 season after appearing in just six games during his brief time with Port.

He is a very versatile player thanks to his ability to move all over the pitch.

Matthew Westhoff switched positions midway through the 2010 SANFL season, going from forward to defense, but he did not participate in any senior games. He was delisted by the Power after the 2010 campaign but was redrafted as a rookie the following year.
