A teenage boy is fighting for life while members of his family remain in a stable condition after being airlifted from a major crash in Quinninup yesterday.

The 15-year-old was this morning in a serious but stable condition at Royal Perth Hospital, with his family in other wards nearby.

They were all airlifted to Perth after their Ford Kuga 4WD ran off South Western Highway near Wheatley Coast Road at 12.20pm.

The car rolled several times before striking a tree — inflicting life-threatening wounds to the young boy who was in the passenger seat.

He was airlifted immediately to Perth while the other people inside the car — another 15-year-old boy, a 14-year-old girl, a 15-year-old girl and the 46-year-old woman driving the car — were taken by road to Warren District Hospital in Manjimup before they were flown to RPH by the Royal Flying Doctor Service.

Officers from the WA Police major crash squad are investigating the crash.

Anyone with information on the crash is urged to call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or report the information online.
