Forensic Crash Unit Sen-Constable Lee Chamberlain said police were looking at a number of possible factors, including speeding and intoxication.

He said he was also liaising with Workplace Health and Safety regarding signs at the roadworks.

Mr Spiller is the 12th person to die on Far North roads within 12 weeks in a horror run for the region.

It comes just a month after three men from Vanuatu were also killed on the Bruce ­Highway when their mini-van ploughed into a semi-trailer at El Arish.

Police are continuing to call for witnesses to the crash south of Innisfail.
