Police looking for next of kin for Dalby fatal crash victim

UPDATE: Police are working to locate a next of kin for a 53-year-old woman who was killed in a three-car collision on the Warrego Hwy.

Dalby road policing unit officer-in-charge Sergeant Brett Stevenson said the woman was travelling east on the highway when her Ford Laser was involved in a head-on collision with a westbound Toyota Prado.

He said a Toyota Hilux travelling behind the Laser then also became involved in the collision.

Emergency services were called to the scene, five to 10km east of Dalby, 2.40pm Friday.

Sgt Stevenson said the woman was from the Tara area.

"Finding family for her has been quite difficult," Sgt Stevenson said.

Investigations into the cause of the crash are continuing.

"We haven't discounted anything yet."
