Woman airlifted after car veers off Burnett Hwy bridge

UPDATE, 9.30am Fri: A WOMAN was airlifted to a Brisbane hospital after being trapped in a car for more than an hour outside of Nanango. 

She was flown to the Princess Alexandra Hospital in a stable condition with lower back injuries. 

A QAS spokesman said paramedics had transported the 64-year-old woman from the scene of the crash on the Burnett Hwy to meet the helicopter at 6.50pm. 

She had been freed sometime after 6.30pm, which had been more than an hour since the initial crash at 5.14pm. 

A second woman who was in the single-vehicle crash was able to free herself from the vehicle straight away and was not injured.

EARLIER, 6pm Thurs: EMERGENCY services are on scene at a single vehicle car crash where a woman is trapped inside.

A QPS spokeswoman said it appears the car lost control on the highway and plunged into a gully.

"The vehicle is off the road, and it appears they have possibly gone off a bridge," she said.

A QAS spokeswoman said the northbound crash occurred on the Burnett Hwy, heading towards Goomeri from Nanango at 5.14pm.

Two females were in the car, and a 64-year-old woman is currently entrapped.

Emergency crews are working to free the woman, and police are on scene directing traffic.

Police are urging motorists to steer clear of the area.

More information to come.
