In a separate incident, two men died and a third was injured after the car they were travelling in rolled in a single vehicle accident in the early hours of Sunday morning.

The incident happened at 4.37am on the Bunya Highway at Taabinga, south of Kingaroy.

As a result of the crash a 34-year-old man and 39-year-old man died from their injuries.

Meanwhile, a man and woman were seriously injured when two cars collided head on early on Sunday morning.

Just after 1am a Holden Commodore was travelling along Bumstead road at Crestmead when it collided with a Toyota RAV4.

The driver of the Commodore, a 21-year-old man, was hospitalised with serious injuries.

The 18-year-old woman driving the Toyota was critically injured in the crash.

The Forensic Crash Unit are investigating both crashes and are appealing for anyone with relevant information to come forward.

The incidents come after police on Friday appealed to drivers to take extra care on the roads leading up to Australia Day.
