A man has been hit and killed by an Uber that was bringing his wife home after a night out in Toowoomba, west of Brisbane.
Police said it appeared the man, in his 40s, had fallen asleep on the driveway before the accident, just after midnight.
Paramedics attended the scene but could not revive him.
Senior Sergeant Jamie Deacon told Seven News the driver was unable to see him because of the camber of the driveway.
“Tragically when they’ve entered the driveway they haven’t been able to see him because of the slope … and he has been run over,” Sergeant Deacon said.
The death was one of three fatalities on Queensland’s roads in the past 24 hours.
Two Taiwanese women were killed yesterday when the car they were travelling in collided with another car at St George, in the state’s south.
