Calliope resident dies in smash

A 54-YEAR-OLD Calliope man died when the car he was driving left the road in Agnes Water on Tuesday.

Police and ambulance officers from Agnes Water attended the scene, but they were unable to save the driver.

He died a short time after the crash, which occurred about noon.

Initial police investigations suggest the man swerved off Round Hill Road and careered into a ditch.

The man was the only occupant in the car.

Investigations are being carried out to see whether a medical reason was to blame for the accident.

A Queensland Police Service spokeswoman said the man's next of kin had been notified, but his name would not be released.

The crash took place on the same isolated road where a 33-year-old Brisbane man died and two children were hurt in December after a horrific two-car smash.
