Three people were taken to hospital for check-ups after a nose-to-tail traffic crash occurred on the D’Aguilar Highway near Coolabunia about 11:45am today.

The incident occurred about 500m south of Peterson Road, near roadworks.

The second vehicle was being driven by an 80-year-old Goodger man.

All three were taken by ambulance to Kingaroy Hospital as a precautionary measure.

“Fortunately no one was seriously injured,” Sen Sgt Frank said.
