UPDATE:

FAMILY and friends of two young Toowoomba men killed in a ute crash are reeling as they try to come to terms with the tragedy.  

The 18-year-old driver and his 20-year-old passenger were pronounced dead at the scene of today's Central Queensland crash, about 20km from Agnes Water at Captain Ck.  

They were driving north on Round Hill Rd in a 4WD ute bearing the logo of Toowoomba home removal business Hassall Free Homes.  

A staff member from Hassall Free Homes this afternoon declined to comment.  

Police believe the ute veered onto the wrong side of the road before crashing into a drain shortly after 6am.

Agnes Water police officer-in-charge Sergeant John Edwards said officers were working to determine the cause of the crash.  

"From initial investigations, it may appear that fatigue was a factor but that is yet to be determined," Sgt Edwards told the Gladstone Observer.  

Online tributes flowed as news of the tragedy spread.  

"R.I.P mate ur goin to be sadly missed by so many ppl my thoughts r with ur family," one Facebook post read.  

"Still dont want to believe it at your dads house now just waiting for you to pull in miss you so much cuz," another said.  

The Forensic Crash Unit is investigating.
