Woman airlifted after car accident near Nanango

The Toowoomba based RACQ LifeFlight Rescue helicopter was tasked to a single vehicle accident on the D'Aguilar Hwy five kilometers N.W. of Nanango Saturday morning around 9am.

The Rescue Helicopter's Critical Care Doctor and Flight Paramedic helped treat a woman in her early sixties that had been encapsulated in her vehicle after it left the highway and crashed into a culvert.

With the assistance of the local QAS, QFES and Queensland Police it took just under an hour to release her from the motor vehicle after being trapped by the legs.

Once released she was airlifted to Toowoomba Hospital in a stable condition suffering limb fractures for further treatment.
