It was a busy day yesterday for the LifeFlight Rescue Helicopter responding to two crashes on the South and North Burnett Raods.

The first accident involved a ute roll over on the Burnett Highway south of Monto around 11:00AM.

The driver was airlifted to the Bundaberg Base Hospital with suspected head injuries.

Meanwhile a more serious accident occurred later in the afternoon with a ute and timber truck colliding north-west of Kingaroy.

The driver of the ute was airlifted to Brisbane in a serious condition.  The truck driver escaped with minor injuries.
