A close-knit community has been shocked by the second fatal crash in so many days after a trader died when his ute hit the back of a truck.
Joseph Guaresi, 62, was killed when he collided with a main engine towing a trailer at noon on Wednesday in Kumbia in north-west Brisbane.
The stunner is the second fatal accident the city has suffered in less than 48 hours after mother, Charmaine McLeod, 35, and her four children were killed on a stretch of road about 20 minutes away on Monday night.
Mr. Guaresi, from Alice Creek, was traveling along Benair Road when he hit Reedy Creek Road in the other car.
Police said Mr. Guaresi, a bricklayer, died on the spot after being seriously injured in the crash.
