Crash victim long-serving MRD worker

THE Rockhampton man who died in a horrific car crash on Monday night was a long-serving employee with the Department of Main Roads.

Gregory Legh died after the car he was driving hit a tree on the Rockhampton-Yeppoon Road, about 2km past the Cawarral turn-off about 8.45pm.

Mr Legh, 62, had been with Main Roads for many years and in 2008 The Morning Bulletin reported he was one of 13 staff from the Fitzroy region to be recognised for contributing 25 years or more of service.

His death was the seventeenth on the region’s roads this year.
