CareFlight airlifts man following Sunshine Coast car accident

The Sunshine Coast RACQ CareFlight Rescue helicopter was tasked to the scene of a motor vehicle accident in the Sunshine Coast hinterland shortly before 3.30pm this afternoon. 

It's understood a single vehicle collided with a tree in an area South East of Maleny, trapping a man in his 20s inside the vehicle.  

The Queensland Fire Service freed the man from the vehicle at the scene. 

CareFlight's medical team and the Queensland Ambulance Service worked together to treat the man on-site. 

He was then flown to the Royal Brisbane & Woman's Hospital in a critical but stable condition.
