Appeal for truck drivers following Midgee fatal


Police are encouraging two truck drivers to come forward as they continue investigating the death of a pedestrian in the Rockhampton region.
A 38-year-old man was found dead on the side of the Bruce Highway at Midgee, not far from his car, early Monday morning.
Police believe he was struck by a passing vehicle and two truck drivers may have vital information.
One was driving a semi-trailer with a green prime mover with an orange tarp around its trailer and the other, a B-double with a white prime mover and two trailers.

Police are encouraging the drivers of these two trucks to come forward.

Anyone else who was travelling along this stretch of the Bruce Highway prior to 1.30 this morning, and may have seen the man, or a vehicle parked on the side of the road, or has relevant dash cam footage, is asked to contact police.
