A man has died following a single vehicle traffic crash at Eagle Farm this morning.
Around 3.15am a white 2018 Megane Renault hatchback was travelling Eastbound on Kingsford Smith Drive on approach to the Gateway Motorway overpass.
As the vehicle progressed through the intersections of French Street and Harvey Street North it struck a large bridge pylon at speed and subsequently caught fire.
The driver and sole occupant of the vehicle died at the scene from his injuries.
Kingsford Smith Drive was closed for several hours, but has since been fully reopened.
Forensic Crash Unit investigators are appealing for witnesses, especially those with dashcam vision of the crash, or the moments leading up to it to come forward
