A 25 year old woman has been airlifted to the Townsville Hospital following a mini-moke crash which claimed the lives of two men in their 40’s.
The two passengers were thrown from the vehicle which hit a power pole on Magnetic Island after 1am.
Police are investigating witness’s claims, that they saw the car travelling at high speed from Picnic Bay towards Nelly Bay shortly before it failed to navigate a roundabout.
The Forensic Crash Unit is investigating alcohol, speed and seatbelts as possible factors.
Police are appealing for more witnesses.
