Aurizon to assist with crash probe

IN the wake of last week's fatality near Stanwell, where two Rockhampton train drivers and a Gladstone man were killed, Aurizon will work with authorities to investigate the incident.

Aurizon CEO Lance Hockridge and several employees will attend the funeral services of the three men, Maurice Dunbavan, Neil Pettit and Callum Ryan.

There will be a minute's silence across the company at the respective time of the funerals to honour the men.

Aurizon has set up funds where employees can donate money or annual leave for the families of Mr Dunbavan and Mr Pettit.

The company will match all donations to these funds.

Aurizon will assist Callum Ryan's employer to set up a similar fund.

Aurizon will be talking to the respective families about a permanent memorial for the victims.

A funeral for My Ryan will be held in Gladstone on Friday.
