EARLIER: Acting Superintendent John Boznjak said investigations were ongoing into the cause of the crash.
"We had forensic crash officers measuring the scene, measuring the tyre skid marks to trying and establish speed and any other causal factors," he said.
"It appears that speed might be a factor.
"There are several factors we are looking at, particularly speed, they are awaiting toxicology reports which will take some time to establish if there is anything in that regard to look at.
"The road itself is not a road of concern, it is an 80 zone.
"There were three children from what we understand in the rear of the vehicle, two of those children have died. It appears seatbelts could be an issue there.
"The four-year-old was actually located in a paddock, so obviously that is a concern whether it was a seatbelt or she was sitting in a position the seatbelt was incorrect for her size."
He said the 10-year-old boy was also thrown from the vehicle.
All of the children are Kawana State School students, with the youngest in Prep.
