Two Maryborough residents killed in Bruce Hwy truck crash
UPDATE: Roads have reopened around the site of a Bruce Highway crash that killed two Maryborough residents last night.
The Chronicle understands driver inattention may have been a factor in the crash, with the male driver attempting to turn around or pull into a rest centre near the site.
A Queensland Police Service spokeswoman said a service station was about 300m from the crash site and police would investigate whether the driver was trying to turn there.
