Man airlifted to hospital in critical condition after horror head-on crash

A man is in a critical condition following a horror head-on crash between a sedan and a semi-trailer at Cunninghams Gap yesterday afternoon.

Initial investigations suggest that the sedan was travelling up the Cunningham Highway around 1.00pm, when the vehicle impacted with a large truck which was travelling in the opposite direction.

Emergency services extracted the man from the sedan and treated him at the scene before the RACQ LifeFlight Rescue helicopter was tasked to the area.


The 33-year-old man was then airlifted to Brisbane Princess Alexandra Hospital in a critical condition with head and limb injuries.

Investigations into the crash are ongoing.
