Entrapped Motorist

At approximately 6.50am on the 21st June RACQ Cap Rescue was tasked to retrieve a 19 year old male who was involved in a single vehicle accident. The patient was found entrapped in his vehicle by a passing motorist, which was located in a culvert on the Bruce Highway near Bajool. Given the state of the vehicle, it is suspected the accident occurred in the early hours of the morning. Upon arrival to the scene, the patient was extracted from the vehicle by the Fire Brigade and received medical treatment by the on board Doctor and Critical Care Paramedic. The patient was airlifted to the Rockhampton Base Hospital in a critical but stable condition with suspected severe head injuries, possible spinal and respiratory concerns.
