Young man killed in highway rollover

A 24-YEAR-OLD man has been killed in a horror crash on Queensland’s Darling Downs, west of Brisbane.

It happened on the Gore Highway at Broxburn, 38km southwest of Toowoomba, about 3am on Sunday.

Police said a passing motorist raised the alarm after driving upon the scene a short time later.


It’s understood a utility was travelling west when, for reasons unknown, it left the road and rolled multiple times.

A passing driver slowed down after spotting debris strewn across the road before locating the man’s ute.

Sadly, the 24-year-old driver and sole occupant from Pittsworth could not be saved and died at the scene.
