Car rollover kills woman, 27

Central Telegraph - - NEWS -

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.
