VIDEO: Woman has suspected spinal injuries after crash

UPDATE: A woman was treated for suspected spinal injures after she was trapped in her car following a crash near Torbanlea on Wednesday.

Initial reports of a truck and car crash prompted an RACQ rescue helicopter to fly in from Bundaberg and land in the middle of the Torbanlea Pialba Rd.

The woman remained trapped in her car.

She was later taken to the Maryborough Hospital by ambulance after her injuries were not deemed serious enough to warrant airlifting to Brisbane.

Traffic on Torbanlea Pialba Rd was blocked in both lanes for several hours as emergency services worked to clear the wreckage.

The car and a Ford ute collided about 11.55am near the Churchill Mines Rd turn-off.

No one else was injured.

The road reopened about 3pm. Scenes of crime officers were called to the crash.

Investigations are continuing.

WEDNESDAY: Torbanlea Pialba Rd is closed and a rescue chopper is at the scene of a two-vehicle crash at the corner of Churchill Mines Rd.

Emergency service workers are at the scene of the crash, involving a four-wheel drive and a car, which happened about 11.50am just outside Torbanlea.

The RACQ CareFlight Rescue chopper is parked on the road which is closed in both directions.

Earlier a woman was trapped in one of the vehicles but has since been freed.

No further information is available at this time.
