Man in his 20s dies in head-on collision with a truck

A man in his 20s has tragically died after his sedan crashed head-on with a truck south of Gladstone yesterday.

Investigations are still underway, though preliminary information indicates he collided with a small truck towing a caravan on the Bruce Highway almost 40 km south of Miriam Vale around 11am.

He was pronounced dead at the scene.


The young man was the only person in the sedan, while a man and woman in their 60s were in the truck and sustained minor injuries, and taken to hospital.

The Bruce Highway had to be closed for a number of hours while the wreckage was cleaned up.
