Quad bike rider killed in central Queensland crash


A man has died after the quad bike he was riding crashed into a bridge before being hit by a passing vehicle, police said. 

Investigating police believe the 31-year-old man and his bike were collected on Friday night by another vehicle after he had crashed and been propelled into the middle of a bridge in Stonehenge, about 150km from Longreach in central Queensland.

The vehicle rolled but it is believed the driver escaped serious injury, while it is unclear if the quad bike rider was already dead at the time of the second collision. 

The forensic crash unit is continuing its investigation.
