February 16, 2010

A cyclist has been killed after he collided with a truck east of Brisbane yesterday afternoon.

The 37-year-old man ran into the side of the vehicle about 5pm as the truck was turning and was caught underneath the rig.

He was dragged for 30 metres before the truck driver was able to stop the vehicles.

Emergency crews arrived but the cyclist died at the scene.

The road where the incident occurred had to be closed as investigations took place, causing extensive traffic delays and congestion in peak-hour traffic.

Investigations are still being carried out and police have not confirmed what kind of truck was being driven.
