Car crash kills Brit on holiday.

A BRITISH man has died in a car crash on a 'notorious' stretch of Australian highway, police said last night.

Frank Stephens, 20, was a passenger in a Ford Telstar which crossed on to the wrong side of the road and was in collision with another car before colliding with a tree.

Mr Stephens, from Wiltshire, was airlifted to the Gold Coast Hospital in Queensland - but died five days later.

Another man from Wiltshire, was airlifted to Princess Alexandria Hospital in Brisbane where he remains in a 'serious but stable' condition.

The driver and another passenger, also from Wiltshire, were taken to Lismore Hospital in New South Wales with minor injuries.

A spokesman for the Australian Police in Sydney said: 'We are still continuing our investigations.'
