Police say multiple people were allegedly involved in a large disturbance on a Mount Isa street about 2am on Saturday.
“It is further alleged a man drove a vehicle directly into the crowd of people and struck a 13-year-old girl,” Queensland Police said in a statement.
The girl suffered head injuries and died at the scene, on Delacour Dr in Pioneer.
