Mackay death: Roadworker, 35, killed in alleged hit-and-run incident on the Ron Camm Bridge



A 35-year-old roadworker is dead after a tragic incident in North Queensland on Tuesday that police allege was a hit and run.

Police allege the death of a 35-year-old roadworker near Mackay in North Queensland was a hit and run, with an arrest having now been made over the incident.

A Mackay man working traffic control on the Ron Camm Bridge was killed, and the northbound lanes of the Bruce Highway closed, after the early-morning tragedy when the worker was struck by a vehicle at about 4am.

Bystanders called triple-0 and rendered first aid to the man; however, he had suffered severe injuries and died at the scene.

Police said the vehicle involved in the incident was believed to be a stolen grey Toyota RAV4.

Officers said a vehicle matching that description – and with damage consistent with the incident – was later found at Petrie St in South Mackay.

A 28-year-old man was arrested in Mackay on Tuesday but after lunchtime on Tuesday was yet to be charged with a crime.

The traffic controller was a local man whose family also lived locally.
