A DRIVER has survived an amazing crash which left him trapped for almost an hour in a rolled over ute at Maryborough yesterday.

The 27-year-old was behind the wheel of his Nissan dual cab when it ploughed through the fence on Alice St about 11am.

Crowds watched on as emergency crews climbed over the vehicle and over the fence and held back tree branches before the man was eventually freed and rushed to hospital.

According to witnesses at the scene, the man had apparently been driving out of a car park on the opposite side of the road when the vehicle swerved out of control and crashed through the newly built fence.

Maryborough mum Tina Black, who lives just a street back from where the accident happened, said the Alice St corner was notorious for crashes and when she heard the "bang" she expected the worse.

The injured man was in a stable condition last night.
