Man in hospital after truck flips on major highway


A man has had an extremely lucky escape after his truck rolled off the side of the road on the Peak Downs Highway in Walkerston this morning.

Emergency services were called to the scene, just after 11am.

They treated the man, aged in his 20s , for minor injuries.

He has been taken to Mackay hospital in a stable condition.

A tow truck had the tricky task of removed the flipped truck from the road, which was causing one lane of traffic to be blocked.

The scene has now cleared.
