The 16-year-old female driver of the Landcruiser and a 45-year-old female passenger sustained injuries in the crash, as well as a 90-year-old woman who became entrapped.

All three were taken to hospital, the 90-year-old in a critical condition. This morning she was pronounced deceased as a result of her injuries.

The 45-year-old male driver of the station wagon was also injured and transported to hospital in a stable condition.
