9AM: A MAN has died this morning after his car rolled over just south of Toowoomba.

The driver, believed to be in his 70's, was travelling east on the Cunningham Hwy in Tregony when he crashed around 7.25am.

He died at the scene. 

Sergeant Shane Reid from Warwick Police said it appeared the car veered off the right-hand side of the road and into a table drain before colliding with an embankment. 

"The vehicle has rolled an unknown number of times, landing on its roof," he said. 

Sgt Reid said investigations were continuing into the cause of the crash.

The Forensic Crash Unit will be at the crash site later today.

Anyone travelling in that direction can expect lengthy delays.
