Police have confirmed the driver of the vehicle, a man, 46, from Bannockburn, was declared dead at the scene.

A girl, 16, who was a passenger in the van was also taken to hospital with serious injuries.

The male truck driver, 23, was not seriously injured.

Meanwhile, a 46-year-old woman has sustained a serious head injury after she was struck by a bus at Deeragun, west of Townsville, in a separate incident on Monday night.

The woman was taken to hospital. The 69-year-old male bus driver was also taken to hospital suffering from shock.
