A 48-year-old man has died following a motorcycle crash at Coles Creek near Gympie overnight.

Around 11pm, police were advised the body of a motorcycle rider had been located between the two northbound lanes of the Bruce Highway, 200 metres south of the Mary Valley Link Road overpass.

Sadly, the man was pronounced deceased at the scene.

Police located a Suzuki SV1000S motorcycle on its side approximately 100 metres from the man.

Preliminary inquiries indicate the motorcyclist parked on the nearby off-ramp and had been standing while holding his helmet when struck by an unknown vehicle.

Officers are trying to gather a complete picture of the incident as part of investigations with further inquiries indicating a utility may have overtaken the motorcyclist and another vehicle at high speed prior to the incident.

Forensic Crash Unit investigators are appealing for any witnesses, particularly motorists travelling on the Bruce Highway around the Kybong area between 10pm and 11pm, or anyone who may have relevant dash cam vision to contact police.

Forensic Crash Unit investigations continue.
