Man killed, traffic blocked after serious Bruce Hwy rollover
A man has died after a serious crash on the Bruce Highway at Tanawha this morning.
A Queensland Ambulance Service spokeswoman said paramedics were called to the crash in the northbound lanes, just south of the Ilkley Rd overpass, just after 9am after the car rolled down an embankment.
Tow truck driver Lindon Bailey said the Mitsubishi Challenger appeared to have drifted off the road and into the embankment at the high-traffic area.
"He's just drifted off the road down into the gully, taken out a few trees and ended up down in the gully," he said.
The patient was treated for critical injuries at the scene.
One northbound lane of the highway is blocked and delays are expected.
Drivers are being urged to proceed with caution.
More to come.
