A smash on the D’Aguilar Highway between Kingaroy and Nanango, which occurred about 8:20am, closed the highway to traffic for about two hours this morning.
The AGL Action Rescue Helicopter, multiple ambulances and fire crews attended the two-car incident on the corner of Hodgeleigh North Road and the highway.
Two people are believed to have been injured.
There is no further information available at this stage.
The AGL Action Rescue Helicopter has flown a 59-year-old Maryborough woman to the Royal Brisbane and Women’s Hospital in a serious condition with injuries to her lower legs.
The Maroochydore-based helicopter landed on the D’Aguilar Highway where its flight doctor and flight paramedic stabilised the woman before moving her.
The woman was the driver of one of the vehicles. Her 24-year-old daughter, who was the only passenger, was taken by road ambulance to Kingaroy Hospital.
A second AGL chopper, this time from Bundaberg, flew another person injured in the crash to the Princess Alexandra Hospital in Brisbane.
The 61-year-old woman, from Nanango, suffered chest and possible pelvic injuries. She was taken by road to Kingaroy Hospital and then flown to Brisbane in a stable condition.
Police investigations are continuing.
