Four people were in the vehicle - three adults and a five-month-old baby. The baby did not sustain any serious injuries but was taken to hospital as a precaution.

A 46-year-old woman and a 67-year-old man, both from Maryborough, were transported to hospital in a stable condition.

A five-month-old baby boy was transported to hospital as a precaution.

Police investigations indicate that around 4pm the driver lost control of the car, a Mitsubishi Pajero, causing it to roll multiple times.

The road was closed for a number of hours while investigations took place, but it has since reopened.

The Maryborough woman was due to turn 21 next Wednesday.
