CareFlight airlifts man trapped in truck roll-over

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.

CareFlight’s Roma-based Surat Gas Aero-Medical Service (SGAS) helicopter was tasked the accident scene, and treated the man for multiple internal injuries.

The patient was airlifted to Toowoomba Hospital in a stable condition.
