Three people have died and ten people, including five children, have been injured in an horrific crash on Great Eastern Highway last night.
Major Crash officers were at the scene this morning, approximately 10 kilometres east of Southern Cross, trying to piece together the circumstances of last night’s crash which was between two vehicles.
A Ford sedan and a Toyota Hi ace van collided last night at 7.40pm, killing both drivers and the front passenger, a 20-year-old male, of the Ford Sedan.
The details of the deceased drivers are not yet known.
A second passenger in the rear of the sedan was injured as were the passengers of the Toyota van, believed to be four adults and five children.
The nature of the surviving passenger’s injuries is unclear but the Royal Flying Doctor Service has confirmed five adults and five children were flown to Perth for treatment.
The ages of the children are not yet known.
Police have advised Great Eastern Highway is closed in both directions in the vicinity and this is expected to continue for a couple of hours at least, while Major Crash deals with the scene.
