Off-duty nurse Angeline Martin lives around the corner from the crash site and told The Courier Mail she heard a ‘bang bang’ that sent her running and saw the car engulfed in flames.
Ms Martin said the farmers rescued the occupants of the vehicle and when she got to them they were lying on the side of the road “in confusion”.
“The girl was asking about her brother, so I put her head on my lap and said ‘your brother is fine, help him on his way,'” Ms Martin said.
“I’m not sure if it was his brother, but one of the boys was screaming for help, both legs were broken.”
The Accident Forensic Unit is investigating.
