One-year-old boy dies after being hit by maxi taxi on the Gold Coast
A one-year-old boy has died after being hit by a maxi taxi on the northern Gold Coast.
Emergency services were called to Sovereign Islands — a gated community at Paradise Point — just after 10:30am.
A 32-year-old Paradise Point woman — who police say is the boy’s aunt — and her four young relatives had exited the van at Excalibur Court, when the boy suffered critical head injuries and died at the scene.
Police said the child’s aunt and the 32-year-old driver have been taken to hospital suffering shock.
The Forensic Crash Unit is investigating.
More to come.
