  • The 33-year-old mother died at the scene.
  • Her baby died in the hospital two days later.

A three-month-old baby has died from critical injuries he suffered in a horrific car accident that took the life of his mother two days earlier.

Emergency services rushed to Caboolture River Rd near Tinney Rd in Upper Caboolture, north of Brisbane, about 2.30pm on Friday following reports a car crashed into a tree.

The 33-year-old mother, from Caboolture, was pronounced dead at the scene and her baby suffered critical injuries after being thrown from an approved baby seat.

The three-month-old baby was taken to Queensland Children’s Hospital, where he died on Sunday afternoon.

Burpengary Forensic Accident Unit Sergeant Greg Price told reporters on Saturday that the cause of the crash is still under investigation.

“At this stage investigations indicate the vehicle was traveling east on Caboolture River Rd, near Tinney Rd, and left the road, colliding with several large trees,” he said.

‘The vehicle suffered extensive damage as a result of the accident. We are looking for witnesses to the accident or any cameras from the accident.

‘We are investigating what the driver’s actions were before the accident. Most of the callers (on Friday) encountered the accident, they were not witnesses.

More to come.
