A 45-year-old Bundaberg man was flown to Royal Brisbane Hospital in a serious condition after a single-vehicle crash on Mundubbera-Durong Road on Thursday morning.

The man’s Toyota LandCruiser, travelling south, left the road, rolled through a fence and came to rest against a tree.

The incident occurred on a straight stretch of road near the Coo-ee homestead at Boondooma.

Emergency services were called to the incident about 10:00am and found the man still trapped in the wreckage.

A passer-by had managed to crawl into the wreck to staunch the bleeding from the man’s severely injured arm.

Emergency crews worked for more than an hour to free the driver while paramedics kept his condition stable.

The man was finally freed and then airlifted to hospital by a waiting RACQ LifeFlight helicopter about 12:15pm.

Police are appealing for anyone who may have witnessed the incident or have dashcam vision to come forward.

The Forensic Crash Unit is investigating.
