A man who tragically died in a horrific road accident wrote a sinister Facebook post just weeks before his death after being cleared of a serious crime.
Wade Sangwell, 32, of Queensland’s Fraser Coast, died from serious injuries sustained in a crash on the Scenic Highway in Rosslyn on Friday when a truck and car collided.
Another man involved in the accident, 42, is currently in serious condition at Rockhampton Hospital.
In May, Mr Sangwell made an emotional post on social media, saying he felt he could “live his life again” after a jury found him not guilty of an incident in 2020.
“What an amazing feeling to be a free man…I am so relieved now that the truth has come out,” he wrote after the verdict.
“I can now move forward and live my life again.”

The 32-year-old was charged in an incident at Petrie Park in Tiaro on July 8, 2020, when a man suffered traumatic brain injury.
Mr Sangwell said at his trial that he acted in self-defense. The Maryborough District Court found him not guilty.
His father said the family endured “two years of hell” outside the courthouse, saying, “It should never have come to this.”
On Friday, Mr Sangwell died as a result of the blast, injuring three other people.
