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.

The car then rolled several times.

QFES used cutting equipment to free both drivers who were trapped inside their vehicles.

The Ford driver, a 62-year-old Dalby man, was transported by road ambulance to Dalby Hospital in a stable condition.

The truck driver, a 59-year-old Caboolture man, suffered suspected spinal and leg injuries and was airlifted by RACQ LifeFlight in a stable condition to Toowoomba Hospital.

The highway was closed for about four hours as emergency services attended the scene.

The Forensic Crash Unit is investigating.
