Driver dies in Redbank rail overpass crash

A man has died after a collision between two trucks and a bus at a rail overpass in Brisbane's southwest.

The collision occurred on Bridge Street, near the Redbank railway station, about 9.45am, police said.

The person who died was believed to be a male driver of one of the dump trucks, a police spokeswoman said. U

Early information suggested a dump truck had travelled east over the bridge, collided with another truck, then a bus, before hitting a power pole, she said.

Two passengers were on the bus at the time but no one else was injured. Police officers are at the scene.

The overpass is expected to be closed for some time while police investigate. Diversions are in place but motorists are urged to avoid the area.

A Translink spokesman said Redbank railway station was not closed but passengers may be affected by access issues on the southern side.

He said all buses scheduled to travel to Redbank train station were terminating at Redbank Plaza Shopping Centre.

More details were being sought.
