Earlier today, one person was killed in a horror crash on the Warrego Highway intersection with Brimblecombe Rd about 9.15am. 

A family returning home from school holidays was left shattered by the multi-vehicle crash - a woman in critical condition was flown to Toowoomba for treatment and a man was flown to Brisbane. 

"The family that have been airlifted to hospital and unfortunately the deceased are from the same family," Acting Inspector Matt Howard told The Toowoomba Chronicle.

Two people were also injured in a crash on the same highway about 1pm. 

A grass fire is being blamed for the two-vehicle crash 20km west of Dalby.
