'I wouldn’t go any further, a little boy has been killed’

 

A BRISBANE family is living every parent's worst nightmare after their three-year-old boy was hit and killed by a teenage learner driver reversing in a townhouse complex.

The little boy was playing with his twin brother about 3.30pm Saturday in the Bayside Central complex when the 16-year-old male accidentally backed into them.

Police and paramedics rushed to the scene, where witnesses reported hearing their mother scream "no" and seeing her cradling her unresponsive son in her arms.

Paramedics worked on the little boy, who had serious chest and head injuries, but tragically he could not be saved and died at the scene.

His brother suffered minor injuries and was taken to the Queensland Children's Hospital in a stable condition.

Detectives and uniform police remained on the scene for several hours, combing every inch of the area forensically.

About 7.30pm a tow truck left Bayview Ct with a Toyota Corolla Ascent with L-plates and remaining police left the scene.

The 16-year-old was taken to hospital suffering shock.

A neighbour in the complex said the accident happened near the entrance.

"I was leaving to take my daughter to the movies and my neighbour said 'I wouldn't go any further, a little boy has been killed'," the witness said.

"I used to see one of the twins riding around on his bike, a little blond boy."

"I don't know how that family will be able to go on."

The complex manager said emergency services did everything they could in the tragic circumstances.

"Paramedics did everything they could to revive him."

Police confirmed on Sunday the 16-year-old driver was being supervised by a family member when the incident occurred, but could not confirm whether the child and the driver were related.

A QPS spokeswoman said there were no charges laid as yet as the investigation is still ongoing.

A shop assistant across the street said he saw a lot of commotion and, at one point, five police cars and seven ambulances.

"More and more ambulances kept coming," he said.

"I knew it was really bad when there were seven ambulances there."

Forensic teams are investigating the accident and a report will be prepared for the Coroner.

It's the second fatal crash in the state's southeast in a day, after a motorbike rider died in a multi-vehicle collision south of Brisbane Saturday morning.

Saturday's fatal crashes follow another horror crash on Friday that killed a 26-year-old mother. Her two young children were in the car at the time.
