Man taken to hospital after being hit by a truck

POLICE say road rage may have gone wrong this morning at a traffic crash on the D'Aguilar Highway.

A man has been transported to the Royal Brisbane and Women's Hospital  with serious head injuries after being struck by a vehicle on the Caboolture Showgrounds exit of the D'Aguilar Highway at about 5am.

Police are appealing for anyone who may have witnessed the crash or saw the vehicles travelling on the D'Aguilar Highway before the crash to contact Police.

Investigations are continuing.
