Car rollover kills woman, 27
CRASH scene images map the tragic moments before a fatal crash near Rockhampton on Sunday night at about 5.30pm.
Yellow paint dotted across the Burnett Hwy near Bouldercombe shows where the vehicle veered across the oncoming lane before it smashed into a tree, killing a 27-year-old woman.
The Queensland Ambulance Service reported the woman suffered serious head injuries as a result of the single-vehicle rollover, about 3km west of the Bruce Hwy intersection.
The Queensland Police Service confirmed she later died at Rockhampton Hospital.
A Queensland Police Service spokesman confirmed the woman, Tin-Marie Johnson, had lived long-term in Rockhampton and recently moved to Biloela.
Ms Johnson was a mother of four children.
The other occupants, three men, were also taken to Rockhampton Hospital.
Two of the three men, all taken to hospital with minor head injuries, were from Rockhampton.
The third was a Gracemere man.
A Rockhampton Hospital spokeswoman said one man was released on Monday morning, another was in “good condition” and was likely to be discharged on Monday and the third was stable.
Emergency services were unable to provide further details on the deceased woman or the patients’ ages.
The Forensic Crash Unit is investigating.
The crash follows a horror week on Queensland’s roads as the school holidays kicked off across the state.
Latest figures show the Queensland road toll has hit 183 people this year, which is seven more people than this time in 2016.
Among those killed was an Emerald woman, 47, who died in a crash on the Carnarvon Hwy last Tuesday.
A Mount Morgan father and son died the following day in a rollover, 30km north of Gin Gin.
