Police responding to fatal traffic crash at Wivenhoe Hill

A man has died following a traffic crash between two trucks at Wivenhoe Hill this morning.

Preliminary investigations reveal around 8am a small pantech truck was travelling southbound on the Brisbane Valley Highway when a collision occurred at a road-works site with a stationary loaded gravel truck with dog trailer attached.

The driver of the pantech truck, a 64-year-old Park Ridge man, sustained critical injuries and died at the scene.

The driver of the gravel truck, who rendered immediate assistance to the man, was not physically injured.
