More than 500 traffic deaths are recorded each year in the state, including those of children.
While there is no national data on traffic deaths, Queensland’s Department of Primary Industries says the number of children who are killed in road accidents is about two and a half times the national average.
A spokeswoman for the department said it was aware of a number of deaths in Queensland, but could not provide further details.
The department said they were working with Queensland Police and the Queensland Ambulance Service, as well as Queensland Road Safety Authority and Queensland Police Superintendents, to support communities in the face of the ongoing tragedy.
