RACQ LifeFlight called to three crashes in 24 hours

Drivers were reminded to remain vigilant when behind the wheel after RACQ LifeFlight crews were called to attend three serious road crashes in 24 hours.

A single vehicle crash at Somerset Dam this morning may have been caused by heavy fog. Two teenage patients were airlifted to Sunshine Coast University Hospital to receive treatment for multiple injuries after their car hit an embankment.

A 30 year old man was the next to receive medical attention after the four wheel drive he was in lost control south of Bundaberg. A patient also had to be freed from the vehicle, suffering head injuries and multiple fractures.

Late yesterday afternoon, RACQ LifeFlight was called to a crash on the New England Highway near Nobby where they arrived to find emergency service crews attempting to free the driver from a vehicle which had flipped. The patient was treated for neck and head injuries before being flown to Toowoomba Hospital in a stable condition.
