Injured man airlifted after truck rolls onto him

The Sunshine Coast-based RACQ LifeFlight Rescue helicopter has flown a man to hospital, after a truck rolled onto him, in the South Burnett region.

It’s believed the man, aged in his 20s, was working on the truck’s brakes when the vehicle rolled backwards, injuring him.

The rescue aircraft was deployed around 10.30 this morning and landed at a rural property near the scene.

The RACQ LifeFlight Rescue Critical Care Doctor and Queensland Ambulance Service (QAS) Flight Paramedic, alongside QAS paramedics on the ground, treated the man for head and arm injuries.

He was flown to the Royal Brisbane and Women’s Hospital in a stable condition.
