Toddler hit by four-wheel-drive

A TODDLER has been taken to hospital after being run over by a four-wheel drive on a Baffle Creek property.

The 17-month-old girl was airlifted to the Bundaberg Hospital accompanied by her mother in the AGL Action Rescue Helicopter.

A Queensland Ambulance spokesman said the incident occurred about 8.15am on a Hills Road property, 40km south of Agnes Water.

AGL Action Rescue Pilot Dick Snell said the chopper was called to the scene about 8.30am and arrived at 9.05am.

“The police and ambulance officers were there when we arrived,” Mr Snell said.

“We transported the girl and her mother."

A Queensland Health spokeswoman said the girl was now in a stable condition.

"She was admitted to the emergency department and is still there," the spokeswoman said.
