A 48-year-old father has been killed in a horror hit and run while standing next to his motorcycle on a freeway.
Dean Khan’s body was found about 100 metres from his Suzuki bike on the Bruce Highway at Coles Creek in rural Queensland at about 11pm on Monday.
Police believe Mr Khan had parked his motorbike on the nearby off-ramp and had been standing while holding his helmet when he was struck by an unknown vehicle.
A teenager is assisting police with their investigation.
‘A man that was full of life, a father, and a loving brother, has tragically lost his life,’ a friend told the Courier Mail.
‘If anyone can give any information regarding what happened to Dean Khan, please help us. His family deserves answers.’
Forensic Crash Unit investigators are appealing for any witnesses, particularly motorists travelling on the Bruce Highway around the Kybong area between 10pm and 11pm.
Anyone who may have relevant dash cam vision is urged to contact police.
Forensic Crash Unit investigations continue.
