Queensland Police has confirmed that a truck rollover on the Bruce Highway today killed the driver and passenger.

As the Forensic Crash Unit investigates the incident that happened near Maryborough on the state's Fraser Coast, a police statement says officers have not yet identified the deceased pair.

The truck rolled at the Tinana exit on the highway about 8:15am, trapping the occupants and shutting off southbound lanes.

Police organised a rescue operation, unaware if the driver and passenger were still alive.

Motorists were urged to avoid the area, as traffic diversions and lane closures were imposed.
