Seriously injured driver airlifted to hospital after rollover

The Roma-based LifeFlight Surat Gas Aeromedical Service (SGAS) helicopter crew has airlifted a man to hospital, after he was seriously injured in a single vehicle rollover last night.

The rescue chopper was tasked to the scene, in the Western Downs region, just after 8.40pm (Saturday 4th June).

It’s believed the man was driving an SUV on a stretch of road, when it crashed and rolled into a ditch.

The driver was reportedly thrown from the vehicle, whilst the three other occupants escaped injury.

Once on scene, the aeromedical crew met with local Queensland Ambulance Service (QAS) paramedics to treat the man for head injuries and internal bleeding.

The man, who is aged in his 30s, was flown to the Princess Alexandria Hospital in a serious condition.

The LifeFlight SGAS helicopter performed the mission, as part of the SGAS partners’ commitment to assisting in providing the south west region and beyond, with community aeromedical coverage, by donating 150 flying hours each year.
