Bundy pair injured in car rollover

A BUNDABERG man was flown to the Royal Brisbane Hospital yesterday with serious skull fractures and a possible spine injury, after his four-wheel-drive rolled on the Bruce Highway just outside of Marlborough.

The 63-year-old man and his wife were travelling north along the Bruce Highway when the man lost control of the car about 12pm.

The man was stabilised at the scene before being airlifted by the RACQ Capricorn Helicopter Rescue Service to Rockhampton Hospital and was then flown to Brisbane by the Royal Flying Doctor Service.

The woman was treated at the scene for non-life-threatening injuries before being transported to Rockhampton Hospital by road.

Police believe fatigue may have been a contributing factor.

The highway was closed at about midday for a number of hours.
