Update – Serious traffic crash, Buccan

A man and woman have passed away after being involved in a serious traffic crash at Buccan this morning.

Around 10.30am, police and emergency services were called after two vehicles crashed near the intersection of Coplick Crescent and Waterford Tamborine Road.

Preliminary investigations indicate a Toyota sedan was travelling south on Waterford Tamborine Road when it crossed into the northbound lane, before hitting a Holden Jackaroo four-wheel-drive causing the vehicle to roll on its side.

As a result, a Toyota Rave 4 also travelling north has crashed into the four-wheel-drive.

The man and woman from the sedan, both aged 81 from Stapylton, were pronounced dead at the scene.

The driver of the four-wheel-drive was taken to Logan Hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Four occupants of the Rav 4, including two children, were also taken to hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

The Forensic Crash Unit is investigating and appealing for any witnesses to the incident or drivers with dash cam footage to contact them on 38095276 or Policelink.
