Investigations continue for a two-vehicle car accident near Alligator Creek, just past 7am on Friday, August 18.
Initial police investigations indicate that a Hyundai Palisade was turning onto the Bruce Highway from Perry Road, when it collided with an oncoming Toyota Landcruiser, which was travelling north.
The Toyota swerved before losing control and rolling multiple times down an embankment.
The three occupants of the Toyota were taken to Mackay Base Hospital.
The 19-year-old male driver and one passenger, a 45-year-old man, were treated for non-life-threatening injuries.
The second passenger of the Toyota, a 29-year-old man, was later transported to Townsville Hospital, after sustaining critical injuries in the accident.
All three men are from Sarina.
The driver of the Hyundai, a 30-year-old Sarina woman, was not physically injured.
Anyone who witnessed the accident or has any relevant footage is encouraged to reach out to police.
