Man critically injured in crash west of Brisbane

A MAN has been rushed to hospital in a critical condition after spending more than an hour trapped in the wreckage of a multi-vehicle crash on the Darling Downs, west of Brisbane.

The accident happened on the Warrego Highway at Dalby at around 8am this morning.

It’s understood the man was driving a four-wheel-drive which collided with two other vehicles.


Fire crews worked for over an hour to cut the man out of the wreckage.

He was flown to a Brisbane hospital in a critical condition.

The highway was closed in both directions between Dalby and Bowenville for several hours while the scene was examined and the wreckage cleared.
