The Forensic Crash Unit is investigating a fatal two-vehicle traffic crash at The Gums yesterday afternoon, February 7.
Initial investigations indicate at approximately 2.10pm, a Hyundai Elantra was travelling east along the Leichhardt Highway when it crossed on to the opposite side of the road and struck a Holden Colorado utility, traveling west, approximately eight kilometres west of the highway’s intersection with Surat Developmental Road.
The driver and only occupant of the Hyundai, a 21-year-old New South Wales woman, was declared deceased at the scene.
The utility driver, a 54-year-old Feluga woman, and a 60-year-old male passenger were transported to Tara Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
The second passenger, a 56-year-old man, was airlifted to Toowoomba Hospital in a stable condition.
Witnesses or anyone with relevant dashcam footage is urged to contact police.
