Fatal traffic crash at Oakey, QLD

A girl has died and three other people injured following a three-vehicle crash on the Warrego Highway at Oakey yesterday morning, Queensland Police say.

Preliminary investigations indicate a semi-trailer travelling east along the highway collided with a utility, also travelling east, at around 9.15am.

The force of the collision pushed the utility into the path of on-coming traffic, where it collided with a sedan.

The 17-year-old girl, who was travelling as a passenger in the sedan, was pronounced deceased at the scene.

Two other people in the vehicle, a 48-year-old man and a 44-year-old woman, were both transported to hospitals in Brisbane. All three were from The Range.

The driver and sole occupant of the dual cab, a 36-year-old man from Oakey, was transported to Toowoomba Base Hospital for treatment.

The driver of the semi-trailer, a 35-year-old man from Victoria, was not physically injured.

Investigations by the Toowoomba Forensic Crash Unit are continuing.
