Lucky escape from rollover

ONE car overturned and another was seriously damaged in a crash at Raceview yesterday.

Police attended the crash at the corner of South Station Rd and Owen St at about 10.50am, after receiving multiple calls from witnesses.

By the time police and ambulances arrived, the occupants of both vehicles had been safely removed from their cars.

One Raceview resident, who wished to remain unnamed, said he helped an occupant of an overturned Toyota RAV4 to get out of the cabin.

The Queensland Ambulance Service later confirmed it had taken one patient, a female occupant of the RAV4, to Ipswich Hospital for observation.

Raceview resident Connie Stirling said she thought those involved were lucky to escape with minor injuries.

"We saw an ambulance come and take one person away. It's lucky that no one got killed," Mrs Stirling said.

"Looking at the crash you would think something a lot worse would've happened."

A section of South Station Rd was blocked until a tow truck arrived to turn the RAV4 back onto its wheels for removal.

The wreckage was cleared and the road reopened by about noon.

Police said the driver of a Holden Astra had been issued with a traffic infringement notice.
