UPDATE: Teen girl remains critical after stolen car rollover
A 15-YEAR-old girl remains in a critical condition after a single vehicle rollover in Blackwater last week that claimed the life of 17-year-old William Langlo.
Early investigations indicate, around 11.15pm Thursday, a car was involved in a single vehicle crash on Columba Access Rd. The car crashed into the level crossing boom gate.
The car was allegedly stolen earlier in the evening from the car park of a hotel on Railway St.
William was pronounced dead at the scene and the 15-year-old girl was first transported to Blackwater Hospital and then to Rockhampton Hospital by helicopter.
She was then flown to the Queensland Children’s Hospital.
A spokesperson for the Queensland Children’s Hospital told The Morning Bulletin this afternoon she was still critical.
William’s family have started a Facebook fundraiser to help cover funeral costs.
The page is called “Funeral cost for William”.
This afternoon, the fundraising page had raised $735 of a $2500 target to help with the cost of William’s funeral.
The Forensic Crash Unit is still investigating the incident.
