Truck driver escapes with minor injuries following rollover

THE driver of a truck that rolled off the Warrego Highway between Jondaryan and Bowenville on Friday night had a lucky escape, only receiving minor injuries from the accident.

Emergency services received a phone call just after 9pm saying there had been an accident about 10 minutes from Dalby.

The vehicle is believed to have been transporting another truck when it veered off the road causing a rollover and resulting in a significant amount of debris on the road.

The east bound lane was blocked for a number of hours and tow trucks were called to the scene.

The sole occupant of the truck, a 35-year-old man, was transported to Toowoomba Hospital in a stable condition with minor chest injuries and a cut on his forehead.

No other drivers or passengers in nearby vehicles were injured.
