Second man dies after horrific head-on crash

UPDATE 1PM: TWO men are dead after a horrific crash on Goodwood Rd this morning.

A 22-year-old man died at the scene and a 19-year-old man later died at Bundaberg Hospital.

A Queensland Police spokeswoman said cars were involved in the smash at 5.45am.

A police spokesman said initial investigations showed one vehicle carrying a single person was overtaking a second car with five passengers when it collided head on with a car carrying the two young men who died.

The driver of the first vehicle was taken to Bundaberg Hospital with non life threatening injuries.

The five passengers of the second vehicle suffered minor injuries.

Goodwood Rd was closed for several hours and traffic redirected through Foley's Rd and the Isis Highway.

The road has since been reopened.
