Australian athlete Daniel Batman has been killed in a car crash south-east of Darwin.

Police say Batman, 31, who lived in Canberra, was travelling east towards Kakadu on the Arnhem Highway sometime after midnight when his vehicle veered off the road and rolled 10 metres.

Senior Constable Allan Macdonald says officers are still investigating the accident, but they say speed and alcohol are probably to blame.

"For some unknown reason he's lost control at the curve and continued on behind me where the cars ended up," he said.
