A man has suffered a head injury after a crane rolled over in Tamborine this morning.
Emergency services were called to Beaudesert Beenleigh Road just before 7.00am following reports of the crash.
On arrival it seems a crane had rolled onto its side, and some sort of liquid was leaking onto the road.
