A 31-YEAR-OLD man has died and five people have been injured in four separate road crashes in the North Burnett over the weekend.
Just before 4pm on Friday, emergency services were called to a truck rollover at Balls Road in Bancroft, north east of Monto.

Later that night three Tongan men were travelling between Eidsvold and Mundubbera when they were involved in a car crash.
They travelled home after the crash but awoke on Saturday morning in pain.

One man, who had suffered chest and neck injuries, was flown by RACQ Lifeflight helicopter.
The other two were flown by plane, one with a shoulder injury and one with neck injuries.
It is believed their injuries were not life threatening.
A man in his 30s was taken to Kingaroy Hospital after a crash between a truck and vehicle on the Burnett Highway north of Goomeri, about 2.30pm on Saturday.
The man sustained shoulder injuries.
Just before midnight on Saturday a 26-year-old French tourist rolled his car on the Gayndah-Mundubbera Road.
The man, and sole occupant of the vehicle, complained of numbness and had suspected chest and spinal injuries.
The road was closed and Queensland Fire and Emergency Service personnel set up a landing site for a rescue helicopter, which was called at about 1am.
Paramedics treated the man at the scene before he was flown to the Royal Brisbane and Women's Hospital in a serious condition.
