Kangaroo causes vehicle roll over

The Toowoomba based RACQ LifeFlight Rescue helicopter has airlifted a 46 year old man after his vehicle rolled over in Surat. 

The man was travelling alone when he lost control of the vehicle and swerved to avoid a kangaroo, causing the vehicle to roll upside down. 


Emergency services worked to free the man for 1.5 hours. He was treated on the scene by Queensland Ambulance Services (QAS) paramedics for possible fractured ribs and injuries to his right arm. 


He was transported to the Toowoomba Base Hospital in a stable condition.
