Another accident on Cunningham Highway

A 42-year-old woman from Brisbane was airlifted to Toowoomba Hospital in a stable condition after a vehicle hit a clump of trees 28km west of Inglewood at 3.30pm Saturday.

The woman was a passenger in the car and the Toowoomba-based RACQ LifeFlight helicopter airlifted her late yesterday from the Inglewood Hospital to Toowoomba with suspected spinal injuries.

Inglewood police were on scene along with Yelarbon police, the Queensland Ambulance Service and Queensland Fire and Rescue Service from Inglewood.

The car was heading east between Yelarbon and Inglewood when it left the road and hit a clump of trees, the biggest tree was approximately 25mm thick.

A mother and grandmother were in the front seat and two children under 10 in the back seat.

All four were taken by ambulance to Inglewood Hospital.

When the 42-year-old was airlifted, the other three involved in the accident remained in the Inglewood Hospital with minor injuries.

Meanwhile at Stanthorpe, a 37-year-old man was transported by ambulance to Stanthorpe Hospital after he suffered an ankle injury when he came off his bike on Newlands Rd, Cottonvale, at 3.42pm Saturday.
