The Forensic Crash Unit is investigating following a serious two-vehicle traffic crash at Alligator Creek near Mackay this morning, August 18.
Initial investigations indicate just after 7am, a grey 2022 Hyundai Palisade was turning onto the Bruce Highway from Perry Road when it collided with an oncoming four-wheel drive which was travelling north.
The four-wheel drive, a silver 1997 Toyota Landcruiser, swerved before losing control and rolling multiple times down an embankment.
The driver, a 19-year-old Sarina man, and his passenger, a 45-year-old Sarina man, were taken to Mackay Base Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
Another passenger, a 29-year-old Sarina man, sustained critical injuries and was taken to Mackay Base Hospital before being transported to Townsville Hospital.
The Hyundai driver and only occupant of the vehicle, a 30-year-old Sarina woman, was not physically injured.
Witnesses or anyone with information or relevant vision is urged to contact police.
Investigations are continuing.
