Two people were taken to Mackay Base Hospital following a crash on the Bruce Highway near Sarina.

A GOOD Samaritan broke her ankle while trying to find a man calling for help after he became lost south of Ipswich this morning.

Police said a female camper phoned triple-0 about 2.50am to report a man calling out near Gorge Rd at Wyaralong Dam.

As Boonah police made their way to the site, the woman went to find the man but tripped and broke her ankle.

Police said the 46-year-old One Mile man was driving along Gorge Rd near Charlwood when his car became wedged on a rock.

He left his car but became disorientated near the dam wall on the opposite side of the camping grounds.

The Queensland Ambulance Service attended and transported the woman to Ipswich Hospital.

The Ipswich Search and Rescue team also attended to help find the man.

He was located at 5.30am.

Investigations are continuing.
