Two people were injured when a car became airborne and crashed into the cabin of a prime mover on the Bunya Highway on Friday night.
Emergency services were called to the incident, between Bell and Dalby, just after 6:00pm.
A police spokesperson said a Ford Territory was heading towards Bell when it passed a pilot vehicle heading in the opposite direction leading a truck carrying a wide load.
After the Ford passed the pilot vehicle it allegedly clipped the side of the truck’s trailer, became airborne and crashed into the cabin of a second truck following the first.
