Toddler suffers serious head injury in crash

A THREE-year-old boy had to be flown to Lady Cilento hospital for treatment at the weekend after suffering serious head injuries in a crash near Yandina.

Police said the toddler was travelling with his parents and 1-year-old sibling when the car they were in crashed on the Yandina-Cooloolabin Road, west of Yandina, about 9.50pm on Saturday.

The toddler was believed to have suffered a fractured skull in the crash.

The boy's parents and sibling were also injured in the crash and had to be taken to Nambour Hospital for treatment, but none were as badly hurt as the three-year-old.

No other vehicles were involved in the crash.

Details of how the crash happened were not available.

A spokesman for RACQ LifeFlight said the service's Brisbane team was called to assemble a pediatric intensive care team from the Lady Cilento Children's Hospital to fly up to Nambour to travel with the child back to the children's hospital.

The spokesman said the boy was in a stable condition when he was flown to Lady Cilento.
