Woman hurt in highway crash

EMERGENCY service personnel used the jaws of life to free a 62-year-old woman after a two car collision at the intersection of Meiers Rd and the Bunya Highway, Kingaroy, this morning.

It took workers some time to free the woman's trapped leg from the wreck during which time she received treatment from the AGL Action Rescue Helicopter's flight doctor and paramedic.

The woman was then airlifted to the Royal Brisbane and Women's Hospital in a serious condition.

She suffered serious leg injuries and possible internal injuries.

The female driver of the second vehicle, a Mitsubishi Pajero, and her child were taken to Kingaroy hospital as a precaution.
