SYDNEY, Dec. 31 (Yonhap) -- One South Korean was killed and two others injured in a car accident in Australia, local police and the South Korean consulate sources said Sunday.

The accident occurred in an intersection in Lockyer Valley, Queensland, at around 1:30 p.m. on Saturday, when a sedan carrying four people, including three Koreans, veered off the road and overturned.

The car crash left a 24-year-old South Korean man dead and another Korean national who was sitting in the back with a serious head injury. Another Korean man and Taiwanese woman suffered light wounds, according to the authorities. The Korean consulate did not reveal their identities, while confirming that they had been staying in the country on a working holiday visa. The local police there are investigating to figure out what exactly caused the accident.

In October, a 29-year-old Korean man on a working holiday visa was killed in a car accident in Tamworth, New South Wales.
