Woman dies in motorway crash

A WOMAN died in one of two serious crashes on the Sunshine Coast on Monday afternoon.

The woman was driving a green Saab southbound along the Sunshine Motorway near the Coolum roundabout at 1.20pm.

The driver of the other vehicle, a white van, in the head-on collision was trapped for a short time.

 A rescue crew freed the man. He was taken to Nambour Hospital but his injuries are unknown at this stage.

The Sunshine Motorway will remain closed between David Low Way, Pacific Paradise and Yandina Coolum Road, Coolum while the Forensic Crash Unit investigate the matter.

The crash follows the miraculous escape of a holidaying couple from interstate, further north on the Bruce Highway, near Cooroy.

The couple’s caravan rolled over at about 12.17pm.

Both occupants, who were travelling southbound, went to Nambour Hospital with minor injuries.
