Trailbike fatality still the focus of Wide Bay police

POLICE are continuing to investigate the horrific crash which killed a trailbike rider at Owanyilla.

The Fraser Coast man, 30, was out riding with his father on Wednesday afternoonwhen his motorbike collided with a LandCruiser travelling in the opposite direction on Boundary Rd East, about 4km from the Bruce Hwy.

The man's father and the LandCruiser driver were both uninjured in the crash.

Wide Bay Burnett Police District Acting Superintendent Paul Biggin said the Forensic Crash Unit were investigating.

But he urged people to take care on country roads.

"Some of these country roads are very narrow," he said.

"Make sure you are obeying the road rules and sticking to the side as you would on a bitumen road."

Boundary Rd East is a single lane dirt road with little space on either side of the track. The crash occurred at the crest of a hill where visibility was poor.

Supt Biggin said speed was not a factor in the crash.

The smash was the first fatal crash in the Maryborough Patrol Group area for 2016.

"We were hoping, as we do every year to have a zero road toll," Supt Biggin said.

He said recent figures had seen there had been an increase in the number of motorcyclists involved in fatal crashes last year when compared to 2014.

A report will be prepared for the coroner.
