Two elderly people have died after their car crossed into oncoming traffic and slammed into a four-wheel drive south of Brisbane, in a horror weekend on Queensland roads.

Their deaths cap off a horrendous three days, with six people, including a toddler, losing their lives on the state's roads.

The man and woman, both aged 81 and from Stapylton, died at the scene after their car smashed into the 4WD near Logan on Sunday morning.

The driver of the 4WD was taken to Logan Hospital with non-life threatening injuries, as was a family in another car, which was also caught up in the collision.

Four other people have died on the state's roads over the weekend.

A 50-year-old woman died in hospital after her four-wheel drive collided head-on with a truck on the Cunningham Highway at Clintonvale on Saturday.

A two-year-old girl was struck and killed by a ute leaving the driveway of a property at Blenheim in the Lockyer Valley on Friday afternoon.

A 39-year-old man then died and four others were injured when a car rolled on the Bruce Highway in Townsville about an hour and a half later.

And a 70-year-old man died at Logan when his car hit another vehicle travelling in the opposite direction.
