TWO men have been taken to hospital and their vehicles destroyed by fire after they collided at Lake Clarendon early this morning.

Gatton police Sergeant Tony Harm said a Holden Rodeo utility was heading north on Lake Clarendon Way about 6.30am when it collided with a Toyota Hilux utility which was heading south and making a right-hand turn from Main Green Swamp Rd to Lake Clarendon Way.

The single occupants of each vehicle, a 30-year-old male from Helensvale and a 69-year-old male from Ma Ma Creek were both transported to Toowoomba Base Hospital for observation.

Sgt Harm said as a result of the crash both vehicles caught alight and were completely destroyed by fire.

Crews from Queensland Fire and Rescue attended the scene to extinguish the fire.

He said the road was blocked for about 45 minutes while the road was cleared.

Investigations are continuing.
