A teenage mother and baby have died in hospital after a crash between a car and a truck in northern Tasmania.

Police on Wednesday said the 16-year-old was a passenger in the car involved in the accident in Wynyard on Tuesday evening.

A two-month-old boy who was also in the car, died at North West Regional Hospital on Tuesday evening.

The car’s driver – an 18-year-old man – was taken to hospital in a serious condition while the driver of the truck was treated for shock.

ABC News reports the teen and 18 year old driver were the parents of the baby boy.

Such a tragedy. Our thoughts are with the family and everyone involved.

  • Oh that poor family. How tragic and so very sad.


  • All so young and so incredibly sad.


  • What a sad and tragic incident !
    Maybe this is a bit strange to say but somehow it could be comforting that they died together, they don’t have to go through life grieving the loss of each other and hopefully are enjoying each other in heaven. Difficult for the family who’s left behind though….
