Police appeal for witnesses to Chinchilla crash

Queensland Police are appealing for witnesses to a serious crash at Chinchilla which has left an 84-year-old man hospitalised with serious injuries.

Police say preliminary information suggests a truck was travelling eastbound on the Warrego Highway on June 4 when a Landcruiser, which had been parked to the left, pulled out onto the road just at around 11.55pm.

“The truck then collided with the Landcruiser, causing it to travel forward before hitting a tree,” Police siad.

“The driver and sole occupant of the Landcruiser, an 83-year-old local man, sustained serious injuries and was airlifted to Royal Brisbane and Women’s Hospital in a critical condition.”

The 39-year-old male truck driver was uninjured in the crash.

The Forensic Crash Unit is appealing for anyone who may have been travelling in the area at the time and have dash cam vision to come forward.
