CareFlight airlifts woman from Warrego crash

The Toowoomba-based RACQ CareFlight Rescue helicopter was tasked to the scene of a serious motor vehicle accident in Hatton Vale on the Warrego Highway just after 8pm Thursday evening.

CareFlight’s critical-care medical team treated a female patient for suspected spinal injuries on scene before transporting her to the Princess Alexandra Hospital.

“We want to thank Police for the road escort to get us to the scene as quickly as possible,” Pilot Simon Newman said.

“The patient was in a stable condition throughout the flight.”
