The Queensland Police Service Forensic Crash Unit is investigating the death of a Weipa man following a single-vehicle crash in the township on 3 June.

The driver and sole occupant, a 44-year-old Rocky Point man, was taken in a critical condition to Townsville University Hospital, where he tragically passed away on 5 June.

Police are appealing for any information, witnesses or dashcam footage that could assist the investigation.
