He said he saw the car crash into the van and then roll down the hill.

"I was more worried for his sake.

"I jumped out of the car and sprinted down whilst I was on the phone to 000.

"We got down here, by that time people had him out and were tending to him."

Paramedics took the Toowoomba man to Toowoomba Hospital to be treated for cuts and abrasions.
