Police responding to fatal traffic crash at Welcome Creek

An 84-year-old woman has died after her car collided with a bus at Welcome Creek, near Bundaberg, this afternoon.

Just before 5pm, the woman was driving her Hyundai sedan eastbound along Moore Park Road.

Early investigations suggest the Hyundai sedan lost control through a series of bends and collided with an oncoming bus.

The 84-year-old Moore Park Beach woman died at the scene while the driver of the bus, a 68-year-old Burnett Heads man and the sole occupant of the bus, was not physically injured.

Officers from the Forensic Crash Unit are continuing investigations and are appealing for any witnesses to contact police.
