Four people have died in a ‘tragic’ accident on a notorious Gold Coast hinterland road.
Emergency services were called to a two-vehicle crash on Nerang-Murwillumbah Rd at Advancetown at 1pm Saturday.
Queensland Ambulance Acting Operations Supervisor Jay Nevins said they arrived to a tragic scene.
“We found four patients in traumatic cardiac arrest and one with minor injuries,” he said.
“The man in his early 20s was transported to Gold Coast University Hospital.”
Queensland Police Service confirmed the other four people involved had tragically died.
“Emergency crews attended the scene where all four occupants from the first vehicle were declared deceased,” an official statement said.
Queensland Fire and Emergency Services were also on scene, attempting to free the victims from the wreckage.
It’s believed the crash involved a sedan and a utility vehicle on a sweeping bend just west of the intersection between Nerang-Murwillumbah Rd and Beechmont Rd.
According to the Bureau of Meteorology, the area has received almost 13mm of rain since 9am, with poor visibility due to heavy cloud cover.
The road is closed and will remain so for some time yet.
The Forensic Crash Unit is investigating.
