Five teenagers have been injured in a serious crash at Mount Tamborine this morning.

Police claim a 16-year-old was driving the vehicle when he lost control and it rolled on Beacon Road at around 5.40am on Wednesday, before two rescue helicopters were called to the scene along with other emergency services.

The two teenagers in the backseat, both aged 14-years-old, were trapped in the wreckage and had to be cut free by firefighters.

The Queensland Ambulance Service (QAS) confirmed one of them was in a critical condition with significant chest and head injuries and was airlifted to Brisbane's Queensland Children's Hospital.

Another was also in a critical condition with an arm injury and was airlifted to the same hospital.

While the three others were all transported by road to Gold Coast University Hospital, including the driver who was in an induced coma with significant head injuries.

Beacon Road between Main Western Road and Monte Street was closed down following the crash as forensic teams investigated the crash.
