An 18-year-old woman was flown to Brisbane with serious injuries after a single-vehicle crash on Manar Road at Boondooma on Sunday evening.

It is believed the vehicle left the road and hit a tree just after 6:00pm, trapping the woman inside.

QAS paramedics at the scene treated her for leg, chest and suspected head injuries.

Two young men in the vehicle suffered minor injuries and were taken by road ambulance to Mundubbera Hospital.

The woman was airlifted by the Sunshine Coast RACQ LifeFlight helicopter to Royal Brisbane & Women’s Hospital in a stable condition.

No one was injured but a police patrol car sustained minor damage in an incident on the Wide Bay Highway on March 23.

It is believed a radar patrol car slowed to do a u-turn on the highway, near Schollick Road at Woolooga.

A Toyota LandCruiser and the police vehicle then came into contact, causing damage to the front of the patrol car.

Police were performing radar duties when the incident occurred.
