A teenage passenger is dead and four other teens are injured after an allegedly stolen car crashed into traffic lights, north of Brisbane.
A 14-year-old was allegedly driving the stolen car when it ran a red light, crashed into another vehicle and ‘wrapped around a street traffic signal’ on Anzac Avenue in Rothwell, at about 4pm on Wednesday.
The driver was critically injured and his passenger of the same age was pronounced dead at the scene.
Four female passengers aged 10, 13, 14 and 16 were all rushed to hospital where they are being treated for injuries.
An inspector at the scene said he was amazed only one person died in the crash.
The death is the 10th fatality on Queensland roads in just six crashes.
