The Sunshine Coast-based RACQ LifeFlight Rescue helicopter has airlifted a 13-year-old girl after she was injured at a property west of Murgon yesterday. 

It's believed the teen accidentally fell under the wheels of a trailer her mum was towing along a driveway. 

The 13-year-old suffered multiple trauma injuries and was transported via road to Murgon Hospital. 

The RACQ LifeFlight Rescue helicopter picked up the teen from the hospital and flew her to the Lady Cilento Children's Hospital.

She was transported in a stable condition.
