Police are currently investigating a fatal crash on the Sunshine Coast on Easter Sunday in an attempt to determine whether it was a deliberate act by the male driver.

Robert, 69, and Elizabeth Makara, 68, died in a one vehicle crash on David Low Way at Pacific Paradise near Maroochydore. Queensland Police and Emergency Services were called to the crash at 7:00am after it was reported that the vehicle had veered into a tree. Both occupants of the vehicle had to be cut free by firefighters and were flown to the Sunshine Coast University Hospital in critical condition. Both later passed away in hospital.

Since the accident, a suicide note has reportedly been located within the car. Another note was also allegedly found at the home of the couple.

Police are appealing for any witnesses of the crash or of the car, a 2016 white Nissan Qashqai SUV, before the crash, to contact them. Any motorists who have relevant dashcam footage of the vehicle are also encouraged to come forward.
