Man airlifted to hospital after truck-car crash

A MAN was airlifted to hospital after a truck and car collided at the top of Blackbutt ridge last night.

According to a QPS spokesman, as a result of the two-vehicle collision, a dual-cab ute went down an embankment on the D’Aguilar Highway and hit a tree, causing injury to his back.


Paramedics and the Rescue Helicopter were called to the scene at 10.41pm, after which a man in his 50s was airlifted to Toowoomba Hospital with back pain in a stable condition.

A second man was assessed at the scene, however, he was uninjured.
