Elderly man seriously injured after getting pinned under 4WD

An elderly man is in a serious condition after becoming trapped under a four-wheel drive at Tallebudgera.

The man in his 70s was working on the car on the side of Goolabah Dr around 2pm when the car rolled over on top of him.

He was pinned for some time before a passerby came to his rescue before alerting emergency services.


A QFES spokesperson says the passerby grabbed a jack to stabilise the vehicle before being able to free him.

The man was suffering a serious arm injury and back pain.

He was rushed to the Gold Coast University Hospital accompanied by a critical care paramedic and the High Acuity Response Unit.
