Details released about Burnett Hwy double fatality

TWO people died in a crash between two vehicles on the Burnett Highway on Saturday night.

A sedan and a four-wheel-drive collided around 10pm about 7km south of Gayndah, police said.

The two male occupants of the sedan were pronounced dead at the site of the crash.

Police said the small sedan was left in pieces after the crash and the two men, aged in their 30s, had died on impact.

It is believed the men had worked on a blueberry farm in Mundubbera as pickers and had only moved to Australia five years ago.

A male and female travelling in the four-wheel-drive suffered non life-threatening injuries.

Police said the sedan had veered onto the wrong side of the road just before the collision.

 

Both vehicles were travelling around a corner when the incident occurred and the road was also slippery following recent rain.

 

Police are urging motorists, especially those who are not used to driving on rural roads, to slow down.
