A 25-year-old Osaka man was killed when the vehicle he was traveling in overturned on an island off the coast of southeast Queensland, police said Monday.

The man was with seven other Japanese tourists, all believed to be in their 20s, when their four-wheel drive vehicle rolled on a beach Sunday on Fraser Island about 300 km from Brisbane. Takeshi Sakai, from Matsubara, Osaka Prefecture, was pronounced dead at the scene.
