A woman has died and five people including several children have been injured following a horrific head-on crash between two vehicles at Broadwater this morning which has closed the Pacific Highway in both directions.
Around 9.30am, police and emergency services were called to a section of the highway in Broadwater after a southbound white Isuzu D-Max and a northbound white Toyota Kluger four-wheel-drive collided head-on.
Two children in the Toyota were released from the car suffering minor injuries, while a woman was found dead in the rear seat.
A man and a woman, who was driving the four-wheel-drive, were trapped in the vehicle and also injured. She was freed from the wreckage and rescuers are currently working to free the man.
The man driving the Isuzu, the sole occupant of that vehicle, has been taken to hospital with a suspected fractured hip and possible internal injuries.
The highway remains closed, and will be for some time.
Officers from the Crash Investigation Unit will prepare a report for the Coroner.
Police are urging anyone with information on the accident to call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
