Serious traffic crash in Forest Lake, QLD

Five people remain in hospital after a two-vehicle crash in Forest Lake overnight.

Preliminary inquires indicate at 10.10pm, a Mercedes-Benz was travelling south along Forest Lake Boulevard when it has collided with Toyota Landcruiser at the intersection of Renoir Crescent.

The 28-year-old male driver of the Mercedes-Benz, his two 22-year-old male passengers, and a 20-year-old female passenger, were all transported to hospital with serious injuries.

The 52-year-old woman driving the Landcruiser was also transported to hospital, where she remains in a serious condition.

Forensic Crash Unit investigations are ongoing and will establish if speed was a contributing factor to the crash.
