Witnesses sought as police investigate Haly St fatality

KINGAROY police are seeking assistance from any witnesses of the fatal traffic crash at the intersection of Haly St and Glendon St yesterday.

As a result, the rider was thrown from the motorcycle onto the road.

He was taken to Kingaroy Hospital before being airlifted to the Princess Alexandra Hospital in Brisbane, where he died last night.

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