Miss World Australia finalist dies following car crash

By Ians

Sydney, Aug 12: A Miss World Australia finalist died after a car crash with two French tourists who were driving on the wrong side of the road, the media reported on Friday.

Elyse Miller-Kennedy, 17, Queensland state's entrant to the 2016 Miss World pageant, died on Thursday night after remaining in hospital for over a week with critical head, chest and torso injuries, Xinhua news agency reported.


Authorities were yet to interview the French driver who is recovering in a hospital, and any charges will rest with evidence from forensic investigators.

The Australian pageant community was mourning the loss of the girl who was "so mature, so happy and full of life".

"She was a beautiful, amazing girl both inside and out and she could have done anything she wanted to," current Miss World Australia Madeline Cowe said.
