Park Avenue deceased man's name withheld for time being

POLICE yesterday weren't able to release the name of the Park Avenue man who died in a fatal car accident at Alton Downs on Saturday night.

The man, 23, was flung from his car and hit by an oncoming vehicle in McKenzie Road about 11.15pm.

A Rockhampton Police Traffic Branch spokesman said the man's name could not be released yet because some of his family members hadn't been informed.

He said the name was likely to be released later this week.

The Morning Bulletin reported the car the man was driving had been seized for a mechanical inspection.
