Two killed in separate crashes four hours apart

TWO men have been killed after losing control of their cars and crashing them on separate roads in southeast Queensland on Sunday morning.

The first fatality occurred at Brightview in the Lockyer Valley, west of Brisbane, just before 12.30am.

Police said a car left Brightview Road and rolled a number of times before coming to a rest.


Sadly, the 45-year-old man behind the wheel was critically injured and died at the scene.

He was the only person travelling in the car at the time, police said.

Then, around four hours later, a 56-year-old man was killed after losing control of his car and crashing it in the Scenic Rim.

It happened on Rosevale road in the small town of Rosevale just after 4.30am.

Police said the man’s car smashed into a power pole before veering across the road and rolling.

The 56-year-old was the only person travelling in the car at the time and was found dead at the scene.

The Forensic Crash Unit is now investigating the circumstances surrounding both fatalities.
