POLICE are investigating the cause of a fatal car crash that killed Maranoa woman Andrea Murray.

Ms Murray, 35, was the passenger in a utility, driven by her husband, David, when their car and another vehicle collided head-on 7km west of Chinchilla shortly before 3pm Sunday.

Mr Murray was yesterday being treated in Toowoomba Hospital and the other driver was taken to Chinchilla Hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

The community has since paid tribute to Ms Murray online.

It is believed Ms Murray, from Wallumbilla, was returning home from a trip to Western Australia when the crash happened.

The Warrego Hwy was closed for several hours and re-opened about 7pm Sunday.

The fatality was the latest in a string of tragic crashes along the stretch of the Warrego Hwy between Dalby and Roma.

Just two weeks ago an Oakey man was left in a critical condition when his car struck a beast 15km east of Yuleba.

He had to be airlifted to Brisbane for treatment.
