Motorcyclist killed in tragic highway crash

A SUNSHINE Coast man has died after losing control of his motorcycle along the Bruce Highway early this morning.

He was declared dead at the scene.

The Forensic Crash Unit is investigating and has asked anyone who may have witnessed the crash to come forward.

All lanes of the Bruce Highway have since been reopened after the tragic incident left lanes closed for about four hours.
