A 71-year-old Victorian woman has been flown to hospital with leg injuries after being struck by a caravan at South Nanango on Friday morning.
A police spokesperson said the caravan, which was still hooked up to a vehicle, began rolling backwards just after 8:30am at a caravan park on the D’Aguilar Highway.
The injured woman, who had been having a cup of tea nearby, rushed behind the caravan to get the family dog out of the way, but was hit.
The passenger side wheel of the caravan ran over one of her legs.
Witnesses ran to help her and called emergency services.
Initial police investigations suggest the towing vehicle had been left parked in neutral.
Ambulance paramedics treated the injured woman at the scene and she was then taken in a stable condition to Nanango Hospital.
A medevac helicopter then flew her to the Sunshine Coast University Hospital for further treatment.
