Motorbike rider dies after Haly St crash

A MAN has passed away in hospital overnight after being involved in a traffic crash on Haly St yesterday.

Forensic crash unit investigations indicate around 1.50pm a motorcyclist was travelling east on Haly St when the 43-year-old rider struck a Ford ute.

As a result, the rider was thrown from the motorbike.

He was taken to Kingaroy Hospital before being airlifted to the Princess Alexandra Hospital where he passed away last night.

The ute's driver, a 62-year-old man, was not injured.

Police are investigating whether speed was a contributing factor to the crash.

Investigations are continuing.
