Elderly woman dies in two-vehicle smash

By Peter Foley

A 91-YEAR-OLD woman died yesterday after the car in which she was travelling and another vehicle collided at Redbank Plains.

Police said the woman was a passenger in a Toyota Camry sedan that was crossing Cedar Road from Willow Street into Carlie Street opposite when it and a Ford sedan travelling down Cedar Street collided about 12.30pm.

The collision forced the Camry on to the footpath and into a fence while the Ford's front wheels were on the footpath.

A police spokesman said the three occupants of the Camry were taken to the Princess Alexandra Hospital in Brisbane.

The RACQ CareFlight helicopter was called but the people were taken by road. Police said the woman died yesterday afternoon while the driver of the car was in a critical condition.

The condition of the other passenger was not as serious, the spokesman said.

The condition of the occupants of the Ford was not known last night.

The police Forensic Crash Unit is investigating.
