The Mercedes had been stolen at gunpoint just hours earlier from a home 30km away in Landsborough. Police allege the armed robbery was carried out by a man in his 20s who then led officers on a dangerous chase.

After fleeing on foot from the deadly crash, the suspect was cornered by brave bystanders at a nearby property. These quick-thinking community members blocked the man from escaping in another vehicle until police swarmed the scene to apprehend him.

Authorities have hailed the good Samaritans as heroes whose bold actions helped detain the alleged criminal in the wake of heartbreaking tragedy.

As investigators piece together the circumstances, many will be reflecting on the fragility of life and how one act of reckless disregard can destroy an innocent victim.

Police say charges may include dangerous driving causing death as questions swirl over what led to this preventable collision. For now, a community can only grapple with the aftermath and work to heal.
