‘Not an acceptable way to mourn:’ Police speak out over vigil
Police were called back to the scene of a fatal crash overnight after mourners, holding a vigil, started performing burnouts at the same intersection.
Initial investigations suggest Mr Ascough's motorcycle collided with an oncoming car at the intersection. He died at the scene.
Loved ones of Mr Ascough took to social media to share their devastation and tributes to the young dad.
But at about 5.30pm on Sunday mourners attended the same intersection to hold a vigil for Mr Ascough.
A Queensland Police spokesman said they received multiple calls about people standing on the roadway and conducting burnouts.
Police attended and had the scene cleared within half an hour.
No charges have been laid yet and investigations into the incident are continuing.
Residents were not impressed with the mourners actions - with many stating they could have injured or killed someone else.
"The last thing the community needs is another fatal accident," one resident wrote on a community Facebook page.
Another wrote: "they can mourn in peace, of course, but doing skids and other dangerous stunts isn't really "in peace". It's dangerous and the poor fella passed away in that exact spot."
"Endangering other innocent people's lives is not an acceptable way to mourn," wrote another.
