Two children dead in horror crash near Geraldton, a man in critical condition

Two innocent children are dead and a man is in a critical condition after a devastating crash south-east of Geraldton.

A boy, just 7, and a 10-year-old girl were declared deceased at the scene of the midday crash in Georgina.

Police say a grey Mazda 3 sedan was travelling south-west on McCartney Road when it collided with a Ford F250 utility at the intersection of Edward Road.

The back of the sedan, 7NEWS reports, was obliterated, with debris sent sprawling across the road.

The children were rear-seat passengers in the Mazda. A man in his 30s, who was also a rear passenger in the Mazda, was rushed to Geraldton Regional Hospital where he is in a critical condition.

“The driver and front seat passenger of the Mazda as well as the driver and passenger of the Ford were conveyed to Geraldton Regional Hospital with minor injuries,” police said.

Major Crash investigators are now seeking witnesses.
