Multiple people fighting for their lives as car crashes into dam
Paramedics are fighting to save the lives of several critically injured patients after a car careered off a road and crashed into a dam in the Scenic Rim on Sunday.
Three rescue helicopters have been sent to the scene to airlift the victims to hospital after the car left Beaudesert Boonah Road and hit the water about 2pm.
A Queensland Ambulance Service spokeswoman said there were six patients in total, several of whom were described as being in critical condition.
Police said Beaudesert Boonah Road was closed in both directions.
It came after a 26-year-old male motorbike rider was killed in a head-on collision with a small truck in the Gold Coast hinterland on Sunday morning.
The police forensic crash unit will investigate both incidents.
