UPDATE: AN ELDERLY woman is in a critical but stable condition in a Brisbane hospital after a serious two-vehicle crash south of Pittsworth.

The Leyburn woman, 86, was initially trapped by her legs in a white sedan involved in the crash at Felton South about 9.10am yesterday.

Four Queensland Fire and Emergency Services crews responded to the scene on Clifton Pittsworth Rd about 20km from Pittsworth to help free the woman pinned inside the vehicle.

A QFES spokeswoman said the woman was "seriously entrapped" with firefighters using hydraulic cutting equipment to free her from the vehicle.

She was released about 10.30am when Queensland Ambulance paramedics were able to assess and stabilise her injuries.

The RACQ LifeFlight helicopter was tasked to the scene and landed on the roadway to airlift the woman to the Princess Alexandra Hospital.

She was transported in a critical but stable condition.

Another woman, 26, also from Leyburn, driving a red ute suffered back and neck injuries and was taken to Toowoomba Hospital in a stable condition.

A baby girl who was in the ute, was not seriously injured in the crash.

The crash closed the roadway for more than an hour with tow trucks clearing the scene by noon.

A police spokeswoman said the Forensic Crash Unit had been tasked to investigate the scene.
