Police investigate double fatality after head-on crash

Crash investigators from Tamworth are trying to piece together the moments before a woman and an 11-month-old baby boy died in a head-on crash.

About 5pm on Wednesday, a Holden Commodore, being driven by a 40-year-old man, was travelling east on the Golden Highway, Dunedoo.

At the same time, a Hyundai i30, being driven by a 25-year-old woman, and carrying four passengers including two men, aged 23 and 29, a 2-year-old girl and an 11-month-old baby boy, was travelling west.

The two cars collided head-on tragically killing the 25-year-old woman and the 11-month-old baby.

The 23-year-old male passenger was taken to Dubbo Base Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, while the 29-year-old man was flown to Westmead Hospital – his injuries are not known.

The girl was airlifted to the Children’s Hospital at Westmead where she remains in a serious condition.

The driver of the Holden was also airlifted to Westmead Hospital – his injuries are not considered life-threatening.

The circumstances of the crash are being investigated by officers from the Crash Investigation Unit.
