A beloved nurse lost her life this morning in a horrific head-on collision allegedly caused by a stolen car fleeing the scene of an armed robbery.
The tragedy unfolded around 7:23 a.m. when a brown Mercedes hatchback, reported stolen hours earlier, slammed at high speed into a Nissan Micra on Windsor Road near Nambour.
The nurse, 52, was tragically killed in the wreckage. Her small Nissan was left utterly crushed, the driver’s side caved in by the devastating impact.
Meanwhile, the alleged driver, a man in his 20s, desperately fled on foot from the stolen Mercedes. But quick-thinking witnesses followed him right to a Flinders Street home where he attempted a second getaway. Together, they bravely held the suspect until police arrived.
Detectives have praised the heroics of those good Samaritans whose actions helped bring some justice amidst this heartbreaking loss.
For the family, friends, and colleagues of the deceased nurse, grief will run deep. In an instant, a beloved member of the community was stolen far too soon. Her selfless spirit and commitment to caring for others will be remembered and mourned.
Investigators are still piecing together the circumstances of this senseless tragedy. They urge anyone with helpful footage to come forward so that the victim’s loved ones may find some closure.
