The crash which occured around 4.30pm, by Nanka Agulu road involved a white Mack Trailer with registration number: ABN625YN

According to an eyewitness, the driver of the trailer loaded with bags of rice was decending the Agulu hill when he suddenly lost control following brake failure.

He said the trailer left the road and fell, throwing away the passenger on top of the trailer.
