'Lucky to be alive': Car hit while driving 100km/h

SOUTH Burnett resident Tammy Moss is lucky to be alive after her car was hit while driving at 100km/h on the Bunya Highway.

Her mother was driving her Ford Territory, with her two children in the back seat, between Tingoora and Kingaroy at 4.30pm on Sunday when a white ute came towards them head-on with no intention of slowing down.

"A ute appeared to be coming towards us head-on so we got over as far as we could,” she said.

"We are really lucky to have survived it.”

Ms Moss said when the cars collided it sounded like it ripped her mirror off but it wasn't until she got out of the car that she realised the extent of the damage.

She said the driver of the ute made no intention to stop and continued driving towards Wondai.

Ms Moss reported the incident to police who are investigating.

A Queensland police spokesman said police were looking for a white ute but have no further description of the vehicle and no one has been arrested.
