Man bashed to death on Springfield road

Police are calling for dashcam footage after a car chase ended with the death of a man at Springfield on Saturday night.

A silver sedan was chasing a white ute along a highway at Springfield Lakes last night when the two cars stopped - and a 49 year old driver was then threatened and knocked unconscious with what is reported to be a piece of sports equipment.

Two other men then allegedly left him to die on the roadside - police arrested two 19 year olds at a nearby home soon after.

Police have opened a homicide investigation and are appealing to potential witnesses or anyone with dashcam or CCTV footage in the area to come forward.

A crime scene has been established and investigators want anyone who was in the Springfield Lakes area between 10pm and midnight who may have witnessed the incident to contact them.

An Investigation Centre has also been established at Yamanto Police Station where investigations continue.
