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.

"The driver's deceased and the passenger is in a critical condition, being airlifted to Brisbane for further treatment.

"Due to the nature of the accident, the road policing unit will be conducting an investigation."

Sergeant Bastable said he was not able to disclose where the couple was from because next of kin had not yet been notified.

The road was closed for a number of hours, with dozens of road users waiting to get through.
