The Queensland Police Service Crash Unit is continuing to investigate.

The family of the crash victims is yet to be notified.

Sergeant Colin Bastable was at the scene of the crash yesterday.

"What happened is we've had a single vehicle travelling outbound on the Biggenden Road here at Aramara and it's come off the road, Sgt Bastable said.
