A MAN has been airlifted to hospital in a serious condition after he was entrapped in a head-on crash at Tinbeerwah this morning.

A Queensland Ambulance Service spokeswoman said paramedics were called to the crash on the intersection of Cooroy Noosa Rd and Coveys Rd about 10.30am.

The man was entrapped by his feet, and a second patient, a man in his 30s, was out of the vehicle when paramedics arrived.

The second patient was taken to Sunshine Coast University Hospital in a stable condition with a lower leg injury.

The man who was initially entrapped has been airlifted to the Royal Brisbane and Women's Hospital in a serious but stable condition, the QAS spokeswoman said.

A Queensland Police Service spokesman said traffic was being diverted down Cooroy Noosa Rd and Dath Henderson Rd. 

Witnesses have reported traffic is "at a standstill" heading to Noosa.

Acting Senior Sergeant Glenn Pearling said initial investigations indicated one of the cars crashed on the wrong side of the rode.

"As to the reason for that occurring, we're not too sure. That will be subject to Forensic Crash Unit looking into the accident further," he said.
