The twin sister of a teenager killed in a tragic car crash in Queensland on Tuesday has delivered an emotional message of support to the driver of the car.
Jade Dixson, 17, was the passenger in a red Hyundai when the car came off the road, flipped and slammed into a tree.
Despite frantic attempts by passing motorists to help the talented young footballer, she died on her way to the Sunshine Coast University Hospital.
Her friend, Adrian Fraser, was the driver. He remains in a critical condition after being transferred to a hospital in Brisbane.
Georgia Dixson, Jade's twin sister, has since reached out to Adrian on social media as the 17-year-old continues to fight for his life.
"We are always here for you," Georgia wrote, according to reports in the Sunshine Coast Daily.
"You're very strong and you will get through this, don't worry about what people say. Jade loved you very much and she wouldn't want you to be angry at yourself."
She added: "Stay strong buddy… love you."
Jade has been remembered by family and the local community as a talented, bright and bubbly young woman who loved her football.
Andy Kinden, president of the Woombye Snakes Football Club, said the news of the accident was met with a "heavy heart."
"Two of the Woombye Snakes much-loved family were involved in a car accident last night," his Facebook post read.
"Adrian Fraser has been flown to Brisbane in intensive care and very sadly Jade Dixson has passed away."
"Jade has been a stalwart at the Snakes since starting as a Junior and is survived by our club legends Mark, Julie, Josh, Shane and of course, her twin sister Georgia."
The post concluded: "Our thoughts are with both families during this very sad time."
Police are now investigating the circumstances which led to the crash. They have also praised the witnesses who performed first-aid.
