Officer-in-charge of Wide Bay Forensic Crash Unit Sergeant Steve Webb said it appeared that the elderly man had continued past a stop sign.

""He may have stopped at the stop sign, but he's gone through it, and he's driven in front of another vehicle," Sgt Webb said.

"He's in a very bad way. He has been taken to hospital."

Sgt Webb praised the Sedan occupants for keeping the man's heart going.
