A 25 year-old-man was airlifted by CareFlight after his truck towing multiple trailers rolled over at Yuleba west of Roma this morning.

At around 9.30am the truck driver’s road train filled with gravel lost control and rolled over, crushing the driver’s cabin and pinning him inside.

A passing mining vehicle saw the accident and raised the alarm.
