Debris from the impact of the crash covered the complete width of the Bruce Highway and stretched for more than 60m along the road.

The truck's tyre under the driver's side of the cabin was completely dislodged in the crash and flew back below the body of the rig, while the cabin itself sustained extensive damage.

The Bruce Highway was closed for a number of hours while the Queensland Fire and Emergency Services cleared the scene and the Queensland Police Service investigated the incident.

The male driver of the car was killed as a result of the crash.
