POLICE have charged a man following a fatal crash at Rochedale on June 3.

It will be alleged that around 4.20am, a utility travelling in the wrong direction of the Gateway Motorway's northbound lanes collided with a hatchback near the Mount Capalaba exit.

The passenger in the hatchback - a 61-year-old Maroochydore man - was taken to the Princess Alexandra Hospital but subsequently passed away.

The 63-year-old female driver also from Maroochydore was transported to the Princess Alexandra Hospital with serious injuries.
