POLICE have confirmed a 49-year-old woman who was thrown from her car in a fatal crash was wearing a seatbelt.
The Eumundi woman could not be revived after a sedan collided with the rear of her hatchback car as she waited to turn right from Eumundi Noosa Rd into Don Napier Rd about 5.30pm Wednesday.
Her vehicle then travelled onto the wrong side of the road and collided with an oncoming four-wheel-drive.
She was ejected from her car as a result of the crash.
The 22-year-old Doonan woman who was driving the sedan which collided with the rear of the hatchback received minor injuries.
The 68-year-old Burnside man driving the four-wheel-drive also received minor injuries.
A fourth vehicle, being driven by a woman, received minor damage after crashing into debris.
Nambour Forensic Crash Investigation Unit officer-in-charge Sergeant Sherryn Klump said officers had finished their investigations at the scene and were taking witness statements.
"The physical evidence and damage to vehicles paints a fairly clear picture of what happened," Sgt Klump said.
However, she declined to comment further.
All vehicles involved have been seized for mechanical inspections.

The crash occurred along a stretch of road with an 80kmh speed limit.
Sgt Klump said the visibility distances on the stretch were ample for it to be 80kmh.
