Mr Erlandsson, 30, was struck and run over by a car about 5am on May 22, a kilometre from the Pringle Street home he shares with his parents.

He was found lying unconscious on the road at Panorama Drive by a passing motorists and he was airlifted to the Princess Alexandra Hospital in a critical condition where he remains in intensive care.

Preliminary investigations conducted by the Nambour Criminal Investigation Branch and the Forensic Crash Unit indicate the man was struck by a vehicle.
