Woman, 21, in Dundathu crash in serious but stable condition

A 21-YEAR-old woman, injured on Tuesday in a crash on Maryborough-Hervey Bay Rd, remains in a serious but stable condition in the Royal Brisbane and Women's Hospital.

An RBH representative confirmed the woman's condition.

Investigations continue into the four-vehicle crash in Dundathu that involved a semitrailer and a black hatchback smashing head-on. 

On Tuesday, police said early indications were that a vehicle might have crossed onto the incorrect side of the road causing the accident.

A witness said he saw "the black car veer right into the semitrailer and it was like an atomic bomb going off".

The road was closed for more than nine hours after the crash as crews worked to remove the semitrailer which had ploughed into mud in the bushland by the side of the road, and clear wreckage and a diesel fuel spill.

Emergency service crews lift an injured woman into the AGL Action Rescue Helicopter after a four-vehicle crash at Dundathu on Tuesday morning.
