76-year-old man airlifted to hospital after Bunya Hwy crash
A 76-YEAR-old Kumbia man was airlifted to hospital in Toowoomba, and three others were taken to Kingaroy Hospital after a driver allegedly failed to give way when turning onto the Bunya Hwy on Monday.
About 2pm a 47-year-old female driver allegedly failed to give way when she turned out of Stuart Valley Dr and pulled out into the path of a car travelling at approximately 100kmh on the highway.
Kingaroy Police officer in charge Senior Sergeant Duane Frank said there were two passengers in the car with the 47-year-old female driver.
He said ambulance officers and fire fighters attended the scene.
The female driver and her two passengers - a 24-year-old female and a 29-year-old male - were treated for minor injuries at Kingaroy Hospital and the 76-year-old driver was treated at the Toowoomba hospital.
Snr Sgt Frank said all four people involved in the two-vehicle crash were treated and were now fine.
However he said the crash was serious and the injuries could have been a lot worse.
"Given the circumstances it could have been a fatal of one or more people," Snr Sgt Frank said.
Snr Sgt Frank said the female driver was issued a notice to appear in court for an offence of careless driving. She will appear in court next month.
