Woman perishes in fiery crash after couple killed in ute

THREE people have been killed in two separate crashes near Kingaroy, west of the Sunshine Coast.

Police said a woman perished in a fiery crash on the Burnett Highway at Barambah just before 11pm last night.

It’s understood the woman’s grey Mitsubishi Triton burst into flames after leaving the road and crashing.


The woman was found dead at the scene, 80km north of where two people died in a horror crash earlier that morning.

A 24-year-old man lost control of his ute and crashed into a tree on Hunters Road at Upper Yarraman about 9am.

Both the man and his 23-year-old female passenger were pronounced dead at the scene.

The Forensic Crash Unit is investigating the circumstances surrounding both incidents.
