Police investigate cause of head-on crash
FOUR people were flown to Brisbane following a head-on crash near Eidsvold on Saturday.
The crash happened about 9am and involved a young couple in a four-wheel drive ute and a mother and her three children in a Toyota Landcruiser.
The most seriously injured was a seven-year-old girl, who received serious internal injuries.
Eidsvold Queensland Ambulance Service officer-in-charge Scott Wicks said the crash, which involved two local families, happened on Old Rawbelle Rd, about 30km west of Eidsvold.
"The Eidsvold Queensland Ambulance Service, Queensland Fire and Emergency Service and police were in attendance, followed by Mundubbera and Monto emergency services," he said.
"All patients were treated and stabilised on scene by QAS paramedics."
A 21 year-old man received leg injuries, a 21-year-ol woman was treated for chest injuries, a five-year-old girl received facial and leg injuries and a 37-year-old woman was treated for multiple leg injuries.
One patient had to be cut from their vehicle by the QFES.
Mr Wicks said all patients were driven to Eidsvold Hospital and shortly after four of them were transported by two Royal Flying Doctor Service planes to several Brisbane hospitals.
The collision happened on the dirt road on the crest of a hill and police investigations into the cause are continuing.
Eidsvold Sergeant Don Roseby said the crash highlighted the need for motorists to pay attention and take extra care on dirt roads and said it was fortunate no one was more seriously injured or even killed.
"Everyone involved is very lucky," he said. "
We urge everyone to look out for oncoming traffic on rural roads."
