A man and a woman have tragically died in a multi-car crash on the Bruce Highway, south of Maryborough on Monday afternoon.

Emergency services were called to the scene approximately 6 kilometres north of Tiaro at 3:15PM.

Preliminary investigations indicate a car was travelling northbound when it hit a second vehicle travelling southbound before colliding head-on with a third vehicle which was also travelling southbound.


A man and woman died at the scene.

A teenage boy was airlifted to Royal Brisbane Hospital in a critical condition, and two men and a woman were all transported to hospital in a serious condition.

The Bruce Highway was closed in both directions and reopened at 8:40PM.
