A woman from the Philippines has died after a car crashed while drunk on the Gold Coast, police said.
The woman, identified as Nene Maria Dureza, died after she was struck by the rear of a car at a petrol station on Tuesday, police spokeswoman Catherine Fong said.
It was not clear whether she had been drinking.
Police said she had not been known to the Goldfields before.
They had received a report of the crash around 1.30pm, Ms Fong told a news conference.
“It was a serious accident and a very young, beautiful woman who had never been on the road before was struck and killed,” she said.
“The car driver was taken to the hospital and is in stable condition.”
No-one else was injured.
The driver of the car, an Australian, was not injured and has been arrested.
Police were treating the crash as a traffic accident, she said, adding that they did not have any details about what caused the accident.
The cause of the accident was under investigation.
