Female crashes on highway

A WOMAN, believed to be in her 60s, was flown by RACQ CareFlight to Brisbane yesterday afternoon after suffering a stroke.

A Queensland Ambulance Service spokesman said the woman had a stroke while driving her vehicle about 70 kilometres north of Goondiwindi on the Leichhardt Highway, before running off the road about 1.30pm.

The ambulance from Goondiwindi was unable to reach the woman because of floodwater, so the RACQ CareFlight rescue helicopter was forced to land in the middle of the Leichhardt Highway about 3.45pm.

The spokesman said the woman was not responding but was in a stable condition when flown out.

A Queensland Fire and Rescue Service spokeswoman said the woman’s little dog was also in the car, and was being looked after by the owners of a nearby property.
