Driver dies in head-on


A MAN has died after his car collided with a truck west of Mackay early yesterday.

Paramedics were called to the Peak Downs Highway at Fiery Creek near Nebo at 1.40am where the 35-year-old Clermont man had suffered critical injuries.

Initial police investigat­ions suggest that a grey dual-cab ute was travelling west on the road when it collided head-on with a truck travelling in the opposite direction.

He died at the scene of the crash.

The truck driver, a 42-yearold man from Mirani, sustained minor injuries.

The Forensic Crash Unit is investigat­ing.
