Teen flown to hospital after Warwick crash

A TEENAGER has been flown to hospital after suffering multiple injuries in a two-vehicle crash near Warwick this afternoon.

The young man's ute collided head-on with a sedan at the intersection of Junabee Rd and Mapes Rd in Junabee at about 3.30pm.

The ute rolled as a result of the crash, leaving its driver with multiple upper body injuries.

Paramedics treated the man, believed to be in his late teens, at the scene before the Toowoomba-based RACQ LifeFlight helicopter arrived.
