Police confirmed the woman was conducting lollipop lady duties outside Labrador State School when she was struck by a passing motorist.

“She was out on the crossing with her lollipop getting ready for the kids to cross the road and she has been collected by a motorist who has unfortunately collided into her and knocked her down the road,” Qld Police told 7NEWS.

The officer confirmed the driver is okay, but still in shock, along with the children who witnessed the accident.

“It was a low speed collision and fortunately no kids were crossing at the time, but of  course they did see what happened so they’re very upset and we will be talking to the school to offer what we can in terms of support for those kids.”

The lollipop lady was treated on scene before being taken to the Gold Coast University Hospital in a stable condition.
