Caboolture resident Peter Hyvari was working on his car in the carport of his unit complex on King St this afternoon when he heard a loud "bang".

He said he had his head under the bonnet and did not see what happened.

"I could see a 4WD on an angle and a motorbike on the road," Mr Hyvari said.

"I never saw what happened but I could see someone laying on the road, they were not moving."

King St is closed in both directions, near Gallipoli Drive.

Police are advising motorists to avoid the area.

More to come.
