Elderly man trapped after car rolls in Booie

UPDATE 3.20PM

Senior Constable Peter Coe from Nanango Police Station attended the crash site after receiving a call out at approximately 2.pm.

"The driver of the vehicle was unable to get out and had suspected injuries to his hip and chest pains."

"QAS and QFES were required to potentially cut him out through the windscreen," Cst Coe said.

The two elderly male patients were driving west on Barkers Creek Rd towards Kingaroy when the car rolled over.

At approximately 2.30pm the driver, an elderly man from Wattle Camp, was pulled free from the vehicle and placed on to a stretcher to be transported to hospital.

The passenger, an elderly man from interstate, was able to self extricate himself from the vehicle.

Cst Coe said the passenger had minor neck pain and scratches to his body but was walking around and at this stage would not need to be hospitalised.

The road between Barkers Creek Rd and Wattle Camp Rd was closed for over an hour as emergency services worked to free the man from the vehicle.
