A man is in a critical condition following a serious traffic crash yesterday afternoon at Minden.

Initial police  investigations indicate that around 2.20pm, a man was riding a bicycle north along Lowood-Minden Road when he collided with a vehicle, also heading north.

The rider, a 70-year-old Prenzlau man, fell from his bike, suffering critical injuries and was transported to the Princess Alexandra Hospital by the Queensland Ambulance Service.

Police say there is no further information available at this stage and the Forensic Crash Unit would continue their investigations.

Anyone with information which could assist with this matter should contact Crime Stoppers anonymously via 1800 333 000 or crimestoppers 24hrs a day.

The accident comes just a day after a horrific crash claimed three lives from the same family on the Warrego Hwy near Glenore Grove.

Christina Walker, 38, and her two sons Zac Lister, 13, and Noel Lister, 9, of Oakey, died when the Nissan Pulsar they were travelling in collided with a truck near the intersection of Forest Hill-Fernvale Road.

They were travelling to Logan, south of Brisbane, to visit a friend.

Initial investigations suggest Ms Walker had stopped on the side of the highway and was pulling back onto the road when she veered into the path of an on-coming semi-trailer travelling in the same direction shortly before 6.30pm.
