Good samaritan seriously injured at crash scene

Toowoomba's RACQ LifeFlight Rescue helicopter has airlifted a woman to hospital, after she was injured at a crash scene, east of Toowoomba, this afternoon.

The rescue chopper was called to the crash just after 3:20pm.

The woman's partner told RACQ LifeFlight Rescue's aeromedical crew, she had been passenger in a vehicle, which pulled over, after they had witnessed a crash and stopped to help.

It's believed while she was on the side of the road another vehicle, which hadn't previously been involved, has struck her.

Queensland Ambulance Service (QAS) paramedics, Queensland Fire and Emergency Service (QFES) firefighters and Queensland Police Service (QPS) officers were all on the scene when the rescue chopper arrived.

LifeFlight's Critical Care Doctor and QAS Flight Paramedic helped stabilise the woman, aged in her twenties, before she was flown to Royal Brisbane and Women's Hospital in a serious but stable condition, suffering leg injuries.

2018 was a record year for LifeFlight for lifesaving missions with its aeromedical crews, community helicopters and Air Ambulance jets performing a record 5,724 missions throughout Queensland and around the world.
