Police waiting for results to determine cause of fatal crash
IT WILL take police at least another month to conclude investigations to determine the cause of a fatal crash at Craignish on Tuesday night.
The crash on Pialba-Burrum Heads Rd took the life of Dundowran Beach man Raymond Burke.
Mr Burke was leaving the Craignish Country Club's driveway when another car collided with his.
The 44-year-old driver of the car remains in a stable condition in the intensive care unit at Hervey Bay Hospital.
Police have already confirmed speed was a factor in the horror smash.
Wide Bay Forensic Crash Unit Senior Constable Glenn Rusten said it would be another four or five weeks before police had determined the full circumstances of the crash.
"We are still waiting for mechanical inspections and toxicology results," he said.
Snr Const Rusten said he would also be doing a reconstruction of the crash using dash camera and CCTV footage.
He said at this stage it did appear the road was a factor but police would not be ruling out anything in their investigations.
Snr Const Rusten said the crash was an unfortunate reminder that people needed to take care when driving.
"Keep it within the speed limit," he said.
"Make sure the car is good condition and has current roadworthies."
Snr Const Rusten also reminded people to take regular breaks.
