Brisbane man killed while standing beside his car in Tiaro

A BRISBANE man died after being hit by a four-wheel drive while standing beside his car in Tiaro on Saturday.

The Forensic Crash Unit is investigating the tragic circumstances leading to the death of the 58-year-old Daisy Hill man.

Just after midday the four-wheel drive hit the man who was standing near his car on the Bruce Hwy, known as Mayne St in that section of Tiaro, near the John St intersection.

Bundaberg doctor Hussain Anjum was one of the first at the scene and attempted to resuscitate the unconscious man while waiting for paramedics to arrive.

"He had visible head injuries," he said.

"I worked with the local ambulance officers and intensive care paramedics from the helicopter, but he passed away."

Acting inspector Paul Behne said investigations found the four-wheel drive that struck the man was hit by another vehicle turning onto Mayne St.

"We are conducting enquiries as to how it occurred," he said.

The drivers of the four-wheel drive and the third vehicle were not injured.
