Three women are dead and two men are fighting for their lives after a horror bus crash in North Queensland.
The background: A four-wheel drive and a Greyhound bus carrying 33 people had been travelling in opposite directions near Gumlu in the Whitsunday region on Sunday when they collided in a 100km/h zone on the Bruce Highway.
Police described the chaotic crash scene as “very, very confronting” with investigations ongoing into the cause of the tragedy.

The key quote: “We haven’t determined any factors that have contributed to the crash at this stage, but certainly a crash of this nature, involving this many people, is a very significant, very tragic incident for us.” — Queensland Police superintendent Graeme Paine.

What else to know: The bus was travelling from Brisbane to Townsville, around 1.5 hours from where the crash happened.
What happens next: Four people are being treated in hospital, with two men aged 24 and 23 in critical condition and another two men, 27 and 51, in stable condition. Three other people injured in the crash have already been discharged from hospital.
