Man airlifted to hospital after Gatton crash

An Ipswich man was airlifted to hospital with serious injuries after a two-vehicle crash in Gatton yesterday.

Late yesterday afternoon two vehicles collided at the intersection of Alan Street and Old College Road.

Police allege a 22-year-old Gatton man failed to obey a stop sign at the intersection and has struck another vehicle.

Both vehicles rolled and were extensively damaged.

The 51-year-old Ipswich man in the other vehicle was trapped in his car and had to be cut free.

He was then airlifted to Brisbane by an EMQ helicopter in a serious but stable condition with injuries to his head, hands and chest.

The 22-year-old man was charged with driving without due care and attention and will appear in Gatton Magistrates Court on July 28.
