A teenage girl was reportedly trapped in her vehicle for more than 30 minutes after it rolled on Silverleaf Road, west of Murgon, on Monday afternoon.

A LifeFlight spokesperson said a passing motorist came across the crash and called for help.

Emergency crews were despatched to the incident at 2:39pm.

After being freed from the wreckage, the injured girl was treated by QAS paramedics before being transferred to the Toowoomba-based Surat Gas Aeromedical Service (SGAS) LifeFlight helicopter.

She was then flown to the Royal Brisbane and Women’s Hospital in a serious but stable condition with suspected head and shoulder injuries.
