Chinchilla police are appealing for witnesses and dashcam footage in relation to a serious single vehicle crash which left a teenage girl in a critical condition and another in a critical but stable condition last night (May 31).

Anyone who was travelling near Wambo Street between 8pm and 9pm and witnessed the crash or saw a grey Toyota Landcruiser and light coloured Landcruiser Prado leading up to the incident, is urged to contact police.


A teenage girl is fighting for life in hospital and another has been injured after a ute lost control on Wambo St in Chinchilla last night and ploughed through two front yards.

The crash occurred about 8.40pm after the Toyota Landcruiser, driven by an 18-year-old local man, skid off the road while heading northbound.

The 4WD crossed the road, hit the gutter part of a driveway and careered through a fence before coming to a halt against a house.

One female passenger suffered critical head injuries and was flown to the Princess Alexandra Hospital in Brisbane.

The second female passenger was taken to the Toowoomba Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

The male driver was not physically injured.

A witness who was among the first on the scene told the Caller of an “incredibly loud” bang when the crash occurred.

“I thought it must have brought down a telephone pole or something it was that loud,” the bystander said.

“One girl was unconscious. We stayed with her the whole time. The paramedics had to stabilise her a few times before she was taken to hospital.”

A path of destruction remains at the scene this morning. There’s fencing and garden debris strewn across the two front yards which the ute crashed through.

There’s a skid mark of about 30 metres along Wambo St where it appears the vehicle lost control.

The Forensic Crash Unit is investigating.
