Three people, including a two year old girl, died on Friday, followed by two people on Saturday, three people on Sunday and one in the early hours of Monday morning.

RACQ’s Principal Road Safety Advisor Joel Tucker said any death on Queensland roads was a tragedy.

“It’s devastating so many lives were lost in such a short space of time and it’s proof it only takes a second for things to go horribly wrong,” Mr Tucker said.

“The death toll now stands at 145, and for us, that’s 145 too many lives lost in our State.

“Unfortunately this isn’t the first time we’ve seen a sharp spate of deaths in a short period – five people lost their lives in just one day in July.”

Forensic police crash investigators continued to examine wreckages.

Investigations by the Queensland Police Service into some of the incidents over the weekend would continue.
