Seven recovering from crashes in Rocky/ Capricorn Coast

AT LEAST seven people are recovering in hospital following a horror weekend on Central Queensland roads.

Emergency services were run off their feet on Saturday and Sunday as they responded to a spate of traffic accidents across the region.

At least eight crashes were recorded across the two days with the most serious being a single vehicle accident on Razorback Rd in the early hours of yesterday morning.

A Queensland ambulance spokesperson said three men were transported to Rockhampton Base Hospital with trauma and head injuries after they were thrown from their vehicle in the crash which occurred around midnight.

The spokesperson said one man was transported in a serious condition.

Traffic was diverted to the Mount Morgan Ranges as crews worked to clear the Razorback route.

With the Easter holiday period just two weeks away, police are preparing to ramp up their road campaign.
