The female driver, who is in her late teens, was able to get herself out of the car and was assessed on scene by QAS.

She sustained shoulder, knee and suspected spinal injuries and was transported in a stable condition to Emerald Hospital.

Also Wednesday afternoon, two rural crews plus one other attended a roadside fire near Cracow.
