Tragic Eenie Creek Rd scooter death near Noosa Civic

A SUNSHINE Coast bus will undergo mechanical testing after a woman on a motorised scooter was run over and killed at Noosaville on Saturday.

The Sunbus vehicle was travelling along Eenie Creek Rd when the collision happened about 2.20pm.

The 51-year-old female rider of the scooter was killed instantly.

Her death takes the 2012 road toll on the Coast to 27 - 11 more than the whole of last year. Police and emergency services rushed to the scene of the accident, just metres from the Noosa Civic Shopping Centre.

The male bus driver was taken to Nambour Hospital for observation.

Firefighters said the Piagio scooter appeared to be almost new and had clocked up only 100km.

The bus was stopped about 10 metres from the deceased female.

The scooter and bus were towed from the scene.

Firefighters said both vehicles would undergo mechanical testing.

Sunshine Coast Forensic Crash Unit is investigating the crash.
