A five-year-old child from one of the vehicles has not yet been accounted for, according to police.

The two vehicles remain submerged in floodwaters, where there has been heavy rainfall over the past 24 hours.

Roads in the area remain closed due to flooding, making access to McGrane Way difficult.

Police will remain at the scene and wait until they can access the vehicles.
