'Truly awful': Witness tells of double-fatal crash
TWO people are on the run after a horrifying crash overnight in Windsor that killed two men and left a major road closed for more than seven hours.
Police are appealing for witnesses and dashcam vision after two men died in the hit and run which involved seven vehicles.
Emergency services rushed to the incident on Lutwyche Rd, Windsor just before midnight Sunday.
Just before midnight a black 2007 BMW X3 was travelling northbound on Lutwyche Road when it collided with a northbound moped being ridden by a 32-year-old man from East Brisbane.
A QPS spokesman said the BMW then veered into the southbound lanes and collided with a Subaru sedan, with the 23-year-old Acacia Ridge man driving and then crashed into a Jeep.
The BMW then rolled until it came to a rest on its roof in the southbound lanes.
"Sadly, both the man on the moped and the driver of the Subaru died at the scene," police said.
Police are searching for the two people who fled from the BMW on foot, while a third person inside the BMW, a 24-year-old Aspley woman was injured and taken to Princess Alexandra hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
Two other people were also taken to hospital.
A woman in her 50s was taken to the Royal Brisbane Hospital in a stable condition with minor injuries while a man in his 40s had neck and shoulder pain and was also transported stable to the same hospital.
The Forensic Crash Unit are investigating the crash as they urgently appeal for witnesses or with dashcam footage.
Krupeli Padel, a local who lives behind Lutwyche Rd, said her family heard a very loud bang and two people were stuck in their car.
"It was a big crash, I heard the sound from my bedroom and we saw two people had died. It was a big accident. I've never seen this type of accident in Brisbane before," she said.
"We just came in by the tunnel about five minutes earlier - if we did not come by the tunnel we would have died.
"People were helping the two people in the car, they were stuck, they were not coming out - I feel so bad about them, they are not in the fault, they are innocent. I feel so sorry for them."
Ms Padel said there are often lots of cars speeding on Lutwyche Rd.
Another witness said there were 10 police cars, three ambulances and two fire crews at the scene.
Another witness at the scene, who did not want to be named, said the accident was very sad.
"I just feel sorry for everyone involved and who lost their lives," he said.
"I checked his (moped rider's) pulse with another man while a blonde lady found something to place over his face and I waited on the phone while the ambulance arrived.
"I was about to turn right onto Lutwyche Rd from New Market Rd when the black BMW came flying past at a seriously fast speed and bounced across the road."
The witness said he was one of the first on the scene.
"I never saw the actual collision as it was just out of my view but was one of the first onto the scene with the man on the bike who passed away and I heard people saying they saw two men running from the scene jumping over fences."
Local Riley Murphy, who lives just behind Lutwyche Rd, said the crash was horrible.
"It's truly awful (they left the scene), I don't know how they could do that," she said.
"We just heard heaps of sirens, it was really loud and they were on for a long time so we knew it was pretty serious.
"There were a lot of cars...and the road was closed for seven hours."
Three other crashes around the state saw two people taken to hospital in critical conditions and one in a serious condition.
A woman in her 30s was flown by helicopter to the Gold Coast University Hospital after a single-vehicle rollover into a tree at Birnam on the corner of Beaudesert Beenleigh Rd and Beaudesert Nerang Rd.
The crash happened about 7.05pm and the woman was taken to hospital in a critical condition.
In a second incident, a single vehicle crash into a pole in Kleinton, north of Toowoomba, saw one man transported in a critical condition.
The man was taken to Toowoomba Hospital after the incident around midnight on Meringandan and Wirraglen Rd.
In Glenrae, west of Maryborough, a single vehicle rollover saw a man in his 20s transported in a serious but stable condition to Royal Brisbane Women's Hospital with suspected spinal injuries.
The man was reportedly initially trapped in the vehicle on Gayndah Mundubbera Rd about 12.10am.
In a separate incident, a man was taken to the Royal Brisbane Women's Hospital after a fall into a bonfire at a private residence in Churchable, west of Brisbane, where he suffered burns to his hands, arms and back, and was transported in a stable condition.
