A single mum-of-four has been killed in a horror car crash just minutes after dropping her kids off at school.

Brianne Doyle, 32, was driving to work after finishing the morning school run when tragedy struck in the Queensland town of Yeppoon in late October.

Her car smashed into another vehicle then slammed into trees after skidding off Tanby Road.

She was initially trapped in the wrecked car unconscious while paramedics tried to free her, before rushing her to Royal Brisbane and Women's Hospital.

She succumbed to her injuries and died a week later on October 29.

The Forensic Crash Unit is currently continuing to investigate the circumstances surrounding the collision, which saw the other driver suffer only minor injuries.

No charges have been laid in relation to the deadly crash.

An online fundraiser has since been established in her memory to support the young kids Ms Doyle left behind.

They are aged six, eight, 11 and 12 years old.

"Brianne had just dropped her four beautiful kids off to school and was on her way to work when she was tragically hit by another driver," the GoFundMe page description says.

"Brianne was an amazing single mother who leaves behind four young children aged 12, 11, 8, 6. She loved and lived whole heartily for her beautiful children.

"Because of the sudden and unexpected passing of our beautiful Brianne we would like to ease the financial burden on the kids and their immediate family so they can grieve the sudden loss.

"Any money raised will be used to support the children through this horrible time, as they now have to navigate through this world with no mother.

"Their education and schooling will be something that needs to be supported going into the future.

"Any donation is greatly appreciated and will support the children from now and into the future.

"Thank you from the bottom of our broken hearts."

More than $19,000 (£10,500) has been raised in just three days.
