A man has tragically died in a massive traffic crash in Logan overnight, while another is fighting for life in hospital.
It’s understood as many as six cars were involved in the crash at Slacks Creek, which saw a 23-year-old driver die at the scene.
Early investigations indicate that just before 6.30pm a white ute hit the back of a stationary sedan in the right hand turning lane, at the exit 24 offramp (Loganlea Road and Pacific Motorway intersection).

According to police, the collision caused the sedan to be ‘shunted’ across two lanes of traffic.
The driver and sole occupant, a 23-year-old Springwood man was pronounced deceased at the scene.
The ute continued to collide with the back of the next vehicle, which then rear ended another car in front of that, and another car in front of that.
The ute driver – a 59-year-old Wynnum West man sustained life-threatening injuries and was taken to the Princess Alexandra Hospital.
A 50-year-old Daisy Hill woman – the driver of one the vehicles – sustained minor injuries, while the remaining drivers were not injured.
Investigations are still underway, and police are calling on witnesses or anyone with dashcam footage to come forward.
