Man trapped in Tamborine rollover

Firefighters have had to use the Jaws of Life to free a man from a wreckage in the hinterland this morning.

The man became trapped after his car rolled on Tamborine Mountain Road just before 6am on Thursday.

Gold Coast South area commander Craig Lashman said Queensland Fire and Emergency Services crews arrived on the scene to find the vehicle upside-down.

"They removed the roof of the vehicle which gained them access to the casualty. He was released and the QAS was able to treat him and transport him to hospital," he said.

Paramedics rushed him to the Gold Coast University Hospital in a serious condition around an hour after the crash.

Mr Lashman said police are looking into what caused the incident, but believes the rainy weather may have played a role in the crash.

"There was a light show which may have contributed to the roads being slippery," he said.

"I'd just like to remind people as they're driving to be mindful of the conditions."
