A MAN is in intensive care with head injuries following a crash allegedly involving high speed in Redbank Plains early on Saturday morning.

The incident was one of several traffic accidents that occurred over the wet weekend.

Police said the 30-year-old Booval man was travelling along Redbank Plains Rd at 1.15am on Saturday when his car veered off the road near the intersection of Greenwood Village Rd and rolled, trapping the male driver inside.

He was transported to the Princess Alexandra Hospital with critical injuries.

Police said blood would be taken to see if the man was under the influence of alcohol or drugs.

The Ipswich Forensic Crash Unit is investigating the cause of the accident.

Meanwhile, another man was arrested for public nuisance following a rollover on the Mary St overpass at Redbank Plains on Sunday at 3.52pm. Police said the driver was under the influence, but it was unknown how the accident occurred. One person was taken by ambulance from the scene.

Nearby, three people were arrested when the stolen car they were driving crashed into a ditch on the Cunningham Hwy at Blackstone on Sunday, about 4.30pm.

Police are investigating.
