Teen remains in critical state

STANTHORPE teen Matthew Hodgson was still in a critical condition in a Brisbane Hospital yesterday after being involved in a high-speed crash last week.

A Royal Brisbane Hospital (RBH) spokesman said the 18-year-old was still in a critical condition in the hospital’s intensive care unit.

Mr Hodgson was the driver and sole occupant of a 1998 Holden Commodore sedan which crashed into a large tree on Tennant Road near the intersection of Amiens Road about 5pm Wednesday.

The teenager suffered head injuries, a smashed pelvis, broken legs and a punctured lung in the crash at Thulimbah and was airlifted from Stanthorpe Hospital to receive surgery at the RBH.

A Stanthorpe Police spokesman said early investigations indicated “excessive speed may have been a contributing factor in this incident”.

Police are still investigating the crash.
