Police looking for witnesses to fatal Warrego Hwy crash

POLICE investigating a fatal traffic crash at Minden on Saturday are appealing for witnesses and have released an image of vehicles that were in the area at the time of the crash.

The crash occurred at the intersection of the Warrego Highway and Lowood-Minden Rd at 11.45am.

The driver of a hatchback sedan, a 67-year-old Regency Downs woman and her passenger, an 18-year-old Redbank Plains woman died at the scene. 

A third woman, a 21-year-old from Redbank Plains, was airlifted to the Princess Alexandra Hospital with critical injuries.

A 37-year-old Burpengary East man, the driver and sole occupant of a utility, sustained minor injuries.

The Warrego Highway was closed for a number of hours before re-opening at 6pm.

Police believe the occupants of the vehicles may be able to assist with their inquiries and are appealing for those people to contact Policelink on 131444.

The vehicles are a white tip truck towing earth moving equipment and a white van (similar to a Toyota Tarago) which were both travelling east on the highway.

A small white sedan adjacent to a fire truck and a dual cab utility towing a trailer at the stop sign on Lowood Minden Rd.

This vehicle had a green tarpaulin in the rear tray and the trailer appears to be similar to a landscaper's trailer.

Investigations are continuing.
