Two men from Harristown, Toowoomba, died following a single vehicle traffic crash in McKinlay on Friday morning.

Just after 7:30am, a car was travelling along the Landsborough Highway, 200km south of Mount Isa, when it lost control and rolled into a ravine.

The 26-year-old male driver and the 33-year-old male passenger, both from the Toowoomba suburb of Harristown, were both pronounced dead at the scene.

The second passenger, a 37-year-old male from Charleville, was transported to hospital.

Mount Isa's RACQ LifeFlight Rescue helicopter airlifted the survivor from the crash scene.

The man told rescuers he had been on a journey from south west Queensland, to the north west.

The man was flown to Cloncurry Hospital, suffering suspected upper body injuries, in a stable condition.

The Forensic Crash Unit is investigating.
