A TOP Sydney prosecutor will oversee the police investigation into a fatal motor vehicle accident involving Director of Public Prosecutions Tim Ellis, SC.

Mr Ellis was seriously injured in a road accident on the Midland Highway near Oatlands on March 24 in which a Launceston woman was killed.

Attorney-General Brian Wightman today announced NSW Deputy Director of Public Prosecutions John Pickering, SC, had been appointed as a Tasmanian Crown Law Officer to provide advice to the Tasmania Police investigation into the crash.

"I have recommended that the Governor make this appointment on the advice of the Acting Director of Public Prosecutions of Tasmania, Leigh Sealy SC," Mr Wightman said.

"This will ensure that Mr Pickering is able to act independently and in an official capacity with all the necessary authority and privileges of a Tasmanian Crown Law Officer in advising Tasmania Police during its investigation."

Mr Wightman thanked the NSW Director of Public Prosecutions, Lloyd Babb, SC, for his assistance in this matter, following a request from Mr Sealy.

Mr Ellis is not expected not return to work for several months pending the outcome of the investigation.

Victorian Coroner Judge Ian Gray will conduct the coronial inquest into the death of 27-year-old Natalia Pearn in the crash.
