It brings the nation’s Easter road toll to nine, with two of those in Queensland alone.

Yesterday, a cyclist was killed instantly when he was struck by a car on Sydney’s north shore.

The previous night, there was another fatality in New South Wale, when a car collided with a truck at Tyndale.

These latest deaths follow earlier tragedies in Western Australia, Tasmania and Queensland.
