A 36-year-old man has died after a motorcycle crash on the Bruce Highway at Mango Hill early this morning.
Preliminary investigations indicate the motorcyclist was travelling south on the Bruce Highway when he lost control of the vehicle and crashed into a light pole just before 2.30am.
The Sunshine Coast man was declared deceased at the scene.
The Forensic Crash Unit is investigating and has appealed for anyone who may have witnessed the crash to come forward.
All lanes of the Bruce Highway have since reopened.
Here is the testimony from Vanessa Gournay, logistics manager at Ranch Koba, partner producer of Capexo for 24 years, on the sanitary situation and the arrangements put in place to ensure the harvest, packaging and shipping of mangoes by plane:
In this unprecedented context, how is the mango campaign looking this year?
“The campaign started a little later, opening on April 12th, but this had nothing to do with Covid-19. Blooming simply occurred later due to the weather conditions, hence the decision by regional prefects and mango professionals to delay the campaign. Despite the exceptional circumstances, what we can observe suggests a product of very good quality. In Ivory Coast, the opening of the season refers to the Kent variety. It is a very sweet mango full of flavors and with a nice texture. It will be a success!”
