A six-year-old boy and his father are dead following a two-vehicle collision in Fairy Hill, Portland on Monday night.
 
The deceased have been identified as Jayden Woolery and 53-year-old David Woolery.
 
Both died at the scene of the crash which occurred sometime after 10 o'clock.
 
Mr. Woolery's three-year-old daughter was also injured in the crash and remains in hospital.
 
It's reported that Mr. Woolery was driving a grey Suzuki Swift with the two children as passengers on the Fairy Hill main road. Both he and the driver of a red Toyota Corolla left a bar and were heading to a cookshop, ten minutes away.
 
The driver of the Corolla attempted to overtake the Suzuki Swift, but his vehicle hit the back of it, resulting in it overturning and slamming into a building.
 
The building, which is a house and shop, was extensively damaged.
 
The driver of the Corolla sustained minor injuries.
 
Marie, a resident who lives along the roadway, said she had to run from her house out of fear that the vehicles would crash into it. 
 
"When I opened the door, it was pure smoke. I saw the car in the yard, so I run out," she recounted.  
 
Luckily, neither she nor her relatives were hurt. 
 
She said, in the aftermath of the incident, motorists were still speeding along that section of main road, which was recently rehabilitated as part of the Southern Coastal Highway Improvement Project.
