The Brisbane community faces a somber moment as three elderly residents succumb to injuries weeks after a devastating car crash in the northern suburb of Bald Hills.

Crash Details
On the night of April 5, a 78-year-old driver and his two passengers, women aged 76 and 74, were involved in a serious accident when their Toyota RAV4 veered off Linkfield Rd and crashed into a fence. The incident resulted in severe injuries to all occupants.

Casualties and Hospitalization
Initially, all three victims were rushed to the hospital in critical condition. Tragically, the 74-year-old woman passed away two days post-accident. The driver died on April 20, followed by the second woman on the subsequent Tuesday, marking a grievous period for their families and community.

Ongoing Investigation
Authorities have launched a comprehensive forensic crash investigation to determine the precise cause of the accident. Preliminary findings have not yet pinpointed why the vehicle departed from the roadway.

Community Response and Safety Measures
This series of tragic deaths has prompted local officials to reassess road safety measures in the area to prevent future incidents. The community has also rallied to support the families of the deceased during this difficult time.

Appeal for Witnesses
Police are appealing to the public for any witnesses or anyone with information related to the crash to come forward. This information could be crucial in understanding the dynamics of the accident and preventing similar tragedies.

The deaths of these three individuals serve as a stark reminder of the potential dangers on the road, particularly for elderly drivers and passengers. As investigations continue, the community seeks closure and measures for enhanced road safety.
