Two people airlifted from Fraser Island 4WD accident

The Toyota 4WD involved in the accident belongs to a Fraser Island sight-seeing ‘tag-along’ company, and contained eight International visitors.

The vehicle was part of a convoy, which was heading south on 75 Mile Beach, when the driver lost control. This resulted in a vehicle rollover that left the driver and one passenger injured.

The Sunshine Coast based RACQ LifeFlight Rescue helicopter was tasked to the scene at 8:34am to airlift the driver, who was in the most serious condition, suffering suspected head, neck and chest injuries.

A woman was treated at the scene by the crew and Queensland Ambulance Service (QAS) paramedics before being airlifted to Nambour Hospital in a stable condition.

The Bundaberg based RACQ LifeFlight Rescue helicopter was sent to the scene at 9:50am to airlift another patient who was a passenger – a Swedish man who suffered suspected neck injuries.

The man was treated by the crew and QAS paramedics at the scene and transported to Hervey Bay Hospital in a stable condition.
