MOTORISTS are again being warned to take extra care on our roads following two crashes on Friday night.

Queensland Ambulance Service acting senior operations supervisor Steven Bechly said in both crashes those involved were lucky to escape with minor injures.

"These people were fortunate but it doesn't take much to become a serious injury or fatality," he said.

Mr Bechly said about 6.30pm a car towing a caravan on the Isis Hwy overturned.

"A female patient and two children were treated for minor injuries and transported to Bundaberg Hospital," he said.

About midnight emergency services were again called to a single-car roll over at Promisedland, near Pine Creek.

Mr Bechly said all four teenagers in the car received minor injuries and were transported to Bundaberg Hospital.

"With Easter coming up it's a timely reminder to take care - all these crashed are avoidable," he said.
