Upon extraction, the onboard Critical Care Paramedic and Doctor treated the patient for significant injuries including suspected several broken bones, fractured ribs and lacerations.
The patient was stabilised on scene before being airlifted to the Rockhampton Base Hospital for further treatment. The road was closed for some time as emergency crews worked to clear the scene.
