A WOMAN has been critically injured after falling from a moving vehicle near Cunningham's Gap.
Police said the woman was a passenger in a vintage car which was travelling towards Ipswich on the Cunningham Highway this afternoon.
The woman fell from the vehicle after trying to close her door, which flung open while the vehicle was travelling between 70 and 80kmh.
RACQ CareFlight Aircrewman Ben Trollope said the elderly lady tried to pull the door shut and was dragged out of the car.
"The patient has sustained serious injuries and is in and out of consciousness," he said.
"She has a large gash to her face, a broken right ankle and a broken right elbow."
CareFlight crew members are preparing the patient for an emergency flight to the Princess Alexandra Hospital.
She is in a critical but stable condition.
