The Sunshine Coast Forensic Crash Unit, along with local detectives are continuing investigations into a single vehicle crash at Pacific Paradise yesterday (April 4) in which two people died.

Preliminary information indicates a vehicle was travelling southbound along David Low Way at around 7am when it left the roadway and collided with a tree.

Detectives are investigating whether this was a deliberate act by the driver with police appealing for anyone who witnessed the crash to contact them.

Police would also like to speak to anyone who saw the vehicle – a 2016 white Nissan Qashqai SUV – driving in the area prior to the crash, as well as any motorists with relevant dashcam footage of the vehicle.

The two occupants of the vehicle, the 68-year-old female passenger and 69-year-old male driver were entrapped for a period of time before being extricated and transported to Sunshine Coast University Hospital, where they passed away.

The woman and man, both from the Sunshine Coast, were known to each.
