Ali died in Australia in a road accident.
Ali died in a road accident in Australia.

Which word order is correct and why?

    Both word orders are correct.

    The first emphasises where Ali died, and the second emphasises how Ali died.

    I would put a comma after 'Australia' in the first sentence.

    Thank you Hp. Would you also put a comma after "road account" in the second sentence where the emphasis is on how Ali died?
