An elderly Wondai couple has died after a single vehicle crash on the Bunya Highway near Ficks Crossing on Sunday afternoon.
Emergency services were called at 11:58am.
A police spokesperson said the couple’s car left the highway and crashed into a tree.
The driver, an 81-year-old man, and the passenger, a 76-year-old woman, were treated at the scene by QAS paramedics but were pronounced deceased a short time later.
The highway was blocked – with diversions in place – while emergency services were at the incident.
It was fully re-opened just before 5:00pm.
Police are appealing for anyone who may have dashcam footage of a white Toyota Aurion sedan (Qld registration 084-WNW) travelling along the Bunya Highway to contact police.
The Forensic Crash Unit is investigating.
There have now been three deaths on South Burnett roads in less than a week.
