Husband hangs on after losing wife

THE husband of an elderly Stanthorpe woman who died in a car crash on Tuesday is still being treated at St Vincent's Hospital in Toowoomba.

Seventy-nine-year-old Bruce Thompson's condition was still unknown last night, after he and three others were injured in the head-on collision at Braeside.

His wife, Grace Thompson, 75, died from injuries sustained in the crash.

Tanya Smith, 37, also of Stanthorpe, was driving the second vehicle from Warwick to Stanthorpe.

She was trapped in her vehicle for hours as firefighters struggled to cut her free with hydraulic equipment before she was airlifted to Brisbane.

A spokesperson from Royal Brisbane and Women's Hospital said she was still in a stable condition last night.

Also in the second vehicle was seventeen-year-old Kodey Fox.

He was in the trauma ward at Princess Alexandra Hospital and was said to be in a stable condition, according to the hospital's media unit.

The third passenger was a 19-year-old Glen Aplin man who was taken to Stanthorpe with minor injuries.

His present condition is unknown.

Forensic Police are still investigating the crash and are awaiting the results from a blood test from one of the drivers.
