The Toowoomba-based RACQ LifeFlight Rescue helicopter has airlifted an injured man to hospital, after he was involved in a truck crash, earlier today.
It’s believed the man was driving his truck, along a road west of Chinchilla, when he lost control of the vehicle while travelling around a bend.
The rescue chopper was sent to the scene, around 3pm, where the pilot was able to land in a paddock nearby.
Queensland Ambulance Service, Queensland Police Service and Queensland Fire and Emergency Service personnel were all in attendance.
The man was reportedly trapped in the truck for more than an hour, before emergency services managed to free him.
He sustained critical internal bleeding and was flown to the Princess Alexandra Hospital under the care of an RACQ LifeFlight Rescue Critical Care Doctor and QAS Critical Care Flight Paramedic.
