A man is dead after a grader rolled on a rural property near Millers Flat last night.
Police last night said emergency services were alerted to the incident, on Beaumont Station Rd about 8.30pm, but no information was given about the condition of the driver.
This morning police confirmed a man had been found dead at the scene.
A St John spokesman last night said an ambulance was called and a rescue helicopter was on standby, but both were stood down a short time later.
