A witness first on the scene said they pulled over to see the male driver of the ute covered in blood.

Queensland Fire and Emergency Service arrived on scene at 1.20pm and used hydraulic cutting equipment to free the occupants of the four-wheel drive.

"It was a relatively easy extrication however the damage sustained by collision made in necessary to use hydraulic cutting tools to get them out," Oakey QFES captain Rodney Mason said.

"It appears the crash has been a t-bone affect which has caused one of the cars to roll over."
