Driver fighting for life
The 54-year-old man sustained serious head and chest injuries after crashing his utility through a barbed wire fence on Coolamon Scenic Drive, slamming down an embankment.
The north-bound utility ripped a 50-metre track of skid marks through a grass paddock and smashed into trees lining a creek.
The accident happened just after 12.30pm yesterday on a sweeping left-hand bend, about 2km south of the town near the golf course.
Police said the man was trapped for about 30 minutes until firefighters could cut him free.
Both lanes of Coolamon Scenic Drive were closed for about 30 minutes while the Westpac Life Saver Rescue Helicopter landed and collected the man before flying him to the Royal Brisbane Hospital, where he was last night reported to be in a serious condition.
Police were unable to say where the man was from.
