UPDATE: Man in 'serious' condition after four-hour ordeal
QUEENSLAND Ambulance Media have confirmed the driver of the truck, a man in his 50s, has been left in a 'serious, but stable' condition after being trapped in a turned-over truck for four hours.
Queensland Fire Media also confirmed the man was eventually released from the cabin after a number of hours, after it was revealed both of his legs had become entrapped in the vehicle.
Following his removal from the vehicle, crews continued to work to prepare the patient for his transport to the awaiting rescue helicopter, before being airlifted to Brisbane.
AFTER being entrapped in the crushed cabin of a truck for hours, the driver has now been airlifted to Royal Brisbane and Women's Hospital with reported leg and head injuries.
THE driver of the truck has now been removed from the crushed cab, following a serious rollover on the Bruce Hwy early this morning at Glenwood.
The patient has been transported a few hundred metres further down the road, likely due to the awaiting rescue chopper.
Traffic is now intermittently being let through, but significant delays are to be expected as tow crews work to retrieve the truck from the embankment.
Traffic is at a standstill on both sides of the Bruce Hwy as emergency crews continue to work to assist the patient.
Gympie Times reporter Tom Daunt is currently attempting to get to the scene, but efforts are being hindered by the highway closure.
It's believed the man has been entrapped in the cab of the truck for a number of hours, with the initial alert being issued before 4am this morning.
