Elderly couple injured in D’Aguillar Hwy rollover

RACQ CareFlight Rescue has flown to the aid of an elderly couple injured in a single vehicle rollover on the D’Aguillar Highway near Nanango.

The pair was travelling north along the highway when the driver, a man aged in his early 70s, lost control of the vehicle.  His sedan veered off the road, rolled and come to rest in a ditch.

The Sunshine Coast based RACQ CareFlight Rescue helicopter was tasked to the scene shortly before 9am. 

The helicopter’s flight doctor and intensive care flight paramedic treated the man for a minor head injury.  The female passenger, aged in her 60s, suffered only a minor leg injury.

The couple was taken to Kingaroy Hospital by road ambulance for further treatment and the helicopter stood down.

Both were in a stable condition.
