A MAN died after he was thrown from a car as it ran into a dam in the Sunshine Coast hinterland.

The driver of the car was being treated in Nambour General Hospital for minor injuries after the incident near Gympie-Kin Kin Rd late last night.

The car was said to have hit the dam at "high impact."

Army personnel on a training exercise nearby were believed to be the first on scene and attempted CPR for 20 minutes before paramedics arrived.

The man could not be revived and was pronounced dead at the scene.

Police said the incident happened about 1km north of Kin Kin about 7.10pm.

The driver, a man, had minor back injuries   and was taken to Nambour General Hospital by the Queensland Ambulance Service. Firefighters and police also attended the scene.

The bushland area was said to be difficult for emergency services to access.

The car was travelling on Gympie-Kin Kin Rd when it left the road and ran into the dam on private property.

Investigations into the crash are continuing.
