A man in his 20s arrives at Cairns Hospital with serious injuries after becoming crushed between two trucks near Millaa Millaa.

 

A MAN was in a stable condition last night after he was crushed between two semi-trailers on the Tablelands.

The 25-year-old suffered chest, back and abdomen injuries when he was trapped between the trucks on Malanda-Millaa Millaa Rd near Millaa Millaa about 2pm yesterday.

Paramedics worked to treat him at the scene before he was flown to Cairns Hospital by the Rescue 510 helicopter in a serious but stable condition.

Queensland Ambulance Service senior operations supervisor Leon Oliveri told the Cairns Post the vehicle rolled on to the patient and he became trapped with his chest and abdomen sustaining some injuries.

It is understood the man had stopped his truck near the intersection of East Evelyn Rd and was at the back trailer attending to it when a tanker driver pulled in behind to assist.

Initial investigations suggest one of the trucks rolled, trapping the man between the two heavy vehicles.
