A mother and her 15-year-old son have been killed and a child hospitalised in a crash on the West Coast.

The 43-year-old woman and her son died in the crash on Taylorville Rd about 11am today.

A preschool boy who was also in the vehicle has been taken to Grey Base Hospital and is understood to be in a stable condition.

Highway Patrol Sergeant Dave Cross said the vehicle was travelling downhill into a bend in wet conditions.

The car had gone over a bank and landed upside-down in a creek.

It appeared only one car was involved in the crash.

A serious crash investigation is under way and police are in the process of notifying next of kin.

 

The Taylorville road is currently closed, with traffic diverting via Dobson.
