POLICE say road rage may have gone wrong this morning at a traffic crash on the D'Aguilar Highway.

A man has been transported to the Royal Brisbane and Women's Hospital  with serious head injuries after being struck by a vehicle on the Caboolture Showgrounds exit of the D'Aguilar Highway at about 5am.
