Queensland Police confirmed it was investigating a crash in Hervey Range, around 50 kilometers from the city, on Saturday evening.

Sky News Australia say reports suggest the car left the road near Alice River Bridge and rolled. Emergency services attempted to revive Symonds but he died from his injuries.
