Emergency services crews attended a two-car crash on the New England Highway north of Crows Nest yesterday afternoon.

The crash, which happened around 1:45pm, closed the highway in both directions for two hours while emergency crews attended to patients.

One person was trapped in a vehicle which needed the roof to cut off to be able to gain access with four patients  treated at the scene.

The Toowoomba-based RACQ LifeFlight Rescue helicopter arrived at the crash site around 2:30pm 

LifeFlight's Critical Care Doctor and the QAS Flight Paramedic assessed a woman with abdominal injuries. 

The RACQ LifeFlight helicopter flew the woman, aged in her 50s, to Toowoomba Hospital, in a stable condition.

QAS, QFES and QPS were all in attendance.
