Two RACQ LifeFlight Rescue choppers airlift mother and daughter

The head-on collision occurred on a straight road and involved four people – two in each vehicle.

Queensland Ambulance Service (QAS) paramedics were first on the scene to treat the patients.

The woman in her 70s (airlifted by the Sunshine Coast based helicopter) and the woman in her 50s (airlifted by the Bundaberg based helicopter) both suffered traumatic injuries.

The patients were both transported in a stable condition to Bundaberg Hospital.

The two remaining patients also suffered injuries and were transported via road to Biggenden Hospital by QAS paramedics.
