A pedestrian has died after being hit by a truck on the Sunshine Coast hinterland.
Police said the man, who they had not yet been able to identify, was walking along the shoulder of Nambour Connection Road in Woombye early Tuesday morning.
Paramedics said he died at the scene.
The busy, four-lane road is the major thoroughfare between the coast’s inland centre of Nambour, the Bruce Highway and the main coastal strip.
Police said the truck collided with the man near Cobbs Road at Woombye about 2.30am.
The road was closed in both directions but reopened before 6am, with Forensic Crash Unit officers on scene to investigate the cause of the crash.
