A man in his 70s has been airlifted by the Surat Gas Aero-Medical Service helicopter after being trapped in his car after an accident on the Fitzroy Highway shortly after midday.

Fire and ambulance crews worked for two hours to free the driver who had rolled his car into trees about 20 kilometres north of Taroom.

The Roma-based helicopter was tasked to retrieve the man who had suffered head, chest and abdominal injuries and transported him to the Princess Alexandra Hospital.
