A mother has sadly died and her two young children left injured after the car they were travelling in veered off the road and slammed into a tree early on Tuesday morning.

Emergency services were called to a rolled-over car in Kenilworth, on the Sunshine Coast, at about 9.20am.

The mother, 36, died instantly, police said.

Her two children, a 12-year-old girl critical condition with head and face injuries and an 11-year-old boy in a serious condition with head and neck injuries, have been airlifted to Lady Cilento Children’s Hospital, reports Daily Mail.
