Woman dies in Sunshine Coast head-on crash

A woman has been killed in a four-car pile-up on the Sunshine Coast.

A Holden on the Sunshine Coast Motorway struck the back of a vehicle stopped in traffic under the North Shore Connection Road overpass before crossing to the other side of the road and crashing head-on into an oncoming car.

The driver of the oncoming car, a 48-year-old woman, died at the scene. Another car crashed into her car, with the driver escaping unhurt, but the drivers of the other two vehicles were taken to hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
