A teenager is fighting for life after a head-on crash between a car and minibus south of Brisbane.

Emergency services were called to Ney Road and Mount Cotton Road at Capalaba about 1.15pm on Friday afternoon.

The jaws of life were needed to free the teenage boy from the car he was driving, says Queensland Ambulance officer Steven Clarke.

The minibus was carrying 15 passengers who were tourists visiting the region.

Three of them were assessed by paramedics and taken to the Redlands Hospital.

Ney Road has been closed and the forensic crash unit is investigating.
