Man airlifted after being pinned between car and trailer

The Mount Isa-based RACQ LifeFlight Rescue helicopter has airlifted an injured man to hospital, after he was reportedly crushed between a car and a trailer, earlier today.

It’s believed the man had been standing behind a car, which began to reverse, but was unable to move out of the way in time.

He became pinned between the two vehicles.

A Queensland Ambulance Service (QAS) road crew initially treated the man, for abdominal injuries.

The RACQ LifeFlight Rescue aeromedical team was sent to Julia Creek Hospital around 3:30pm, where they met the patient, who’d been driven to the facility by QAS.

He was then flown to Mt Isa Hospital, in a stable condition.
