Tourist airlifted after car crash

A Taiwanese tourist has been airlifted by RACQ CareFlight Rescue after a two car crash near Stanthorpe this morning.

The 28 year old woman was in a car that collided with another just outside the south west border town at 11am this morning.

This afternoon the Gold Coast RACQ CareFlight Rescue team was tasked to airlift the woman who has suspected abdominal injuries.

She was flown to the Gold Coast University Hospital in a stable condition.
 
More than half of all of RACQ CareFlight Rescue’s 1,400 missions last year involved the transfer of seriously ill or injured people who need to be moved between hospitals.
 
These missions were flown from one of CareFlight’s four community helicopter bases at Toowoomba, Bundaberg, or on the Gold and Sunshine coasts.
