Two teenskilled in head-on
TWO teenagers are dead following a horror smash on the Gold Coast over the weekend that has left another two people in a serious condition in hospital.
A 15-year-old boy and 16-yearold girl were killed on Saturday night when they were thrown from a car in a smash in Murtha Drive at Elanora.
Police are yet to determine the cause of the accident but believe the car carrying the teens had crossed to the wrong side of the road moments before the crash at 11.30pm. It hit an oncoming vehicle and threw the teens from the car.
The 15-year-old died at the scene and the 16-year-old died not long after at the Tweed Heads Hospital. Two other people involved in the accident remain at the Gold Coast Hospital suffering serious injuries.
