Woman airlifted in serious condition after crash

ONE woman has been left seriously injured after a traffic crash in Clintonvale, near Warwick, last night.

Emergency services were called to the intersection of Freestone Rd and Cunningham Highway at 6.24pm after a single car crash.

Paramedics soon assessed that the woman in her 30s had a head inquiry and was in a serious but stable condition.

She was airlifted to the Princess Alexandra Hospital.

Two children were also in the car, with a girl suffering a minor shoulder injury and an uninjured boy.

A man, also in his 30s, suffered a foot laceration.

All three were taken to the Ipswich Hospital in a stable condition.

Warwick officer-in-charge Jamie Deacon said the trailer, attached to the car, allegedly caused the crash.

They (the motorists) claim the trailer started to sway and they were unable to control it and then the car flipped," he said.

The highway was blocked off but has since reopened, according to a QFES spokeswoman.

She also confirmed that the party had not been trapped in the car.
