QUEENSLAND'S Christmas holiday road toll has risen to three after two fatal crashes in 12 hours.

Police said a 25-year-old Coorparoo man parked his car, possibly broken-down, on the side of the Logan Motorway at Berrinba on Thursday night.

A truck hit the man as he was standing on the road.

The man died at the scene.

Twelve hours later, a 19-year-old man died after a quad bike and a four-wheel-drive collided on Amamoor Creek Rd south of Gympie.

The State's first fatality was on a North Queensland road death earlier this week.

On Thursday, police caught 51 drink-drivers and 897 speeding motorists.
