14yo dead, five children injured in horror crash

A teenage boy has been killed, and multiple other kids are in critical condition in hospital after a horror crash in Moreton Bay yesterday.

Six kids, aged between 10 and 16, were travelling in a stolen vehicle just before 4.00pm yesterday, before the vehicle lost control, struck another car and then collided with a set of traffic lights.

The car hit a traffic pole on its left side at such a high speed that the vehicle split in two.


The front passenger of the car – a 14-year-old boy – was pronounced dead at the scene.

The alleged driver of the car – another 14-year-old boy – suffered critical injuries and was rushed to hospital.

Four other female passengers of the vehicle – aged 10, 13, 14 and 16 years old – sustained injuries as well.

One of them is also critical and was rushed to hospital.

Police says the car was stolen from a shopping centre at Kallangur earlier in the day.

The other vehicle that was struck had a 26-year-old woman in it, along with her four children.

They all fortunately escaped serious injury.
