Three-vehicle crash has claimed a life of a young man during foggy conditions in Queensland.
Around 6.30 in the morning on Thursday, a man in his early 20s was pronounced dead at the scene of an accident on the Gore Highway in Broxburn, close to Toowoomba.
When the man hit the truck, the police believe he was driving a white four-wheel-drive vehicle and turning into the highway.
After getting out of his vehicle, he was hit by a ute, and as a result, he sustained fatal injuries.
The man who was driving the ute, who was 55 years old, was brought to the hospital with some rather minor injuries.

The driver of the truck did not sustain any injuries.
The route was closed and automobiles had to do U-turns because of the accident, which caused significant delays in traffic.
A dense fog blanketed the south-east corner of Queensland on Thursday morning, and the local police force urged residents to travel safely despite the conditions.
