Speed played a role in accident
POLICE investigating the accident which took the life of Rockhampton teenager Ty Dylan Pryke have confirmed speed contributed to the accident.
"All I can say is speed is a factor at this stage,'' Senior Constable John Muller said.
But Senior Constable Muller said the findings of the investigation could be several weeks away with an examination of the seventeen-year-old's Holden station wagon still to be conducted.
The teenager was killed after crashing into the Larcombe Street bridge shortly before 10pm on Friday.
Senior Constable Muller said he had interviewed several witnesses at the scene of the accident but called on anyone else who had witnessed the accident to contact police.
Meanwhile staff at Glenmore State High School were keeping an eye on Ty's former classmate's yesterday to determine if any needed counselling.
"We have a watching brief on any students who might have known him well,'' Principal Nancy Williamson said.
But Ms Williamson said the school wasn't planning to hold any memorial services for Ty because he left the school two years ago.
"It's not the same situation for us as it would have been if he was a current student but we have made the guidance counsellor available for his former classmates.
