Photo: Caitlin Holding / TwitterA 21-year-old woman suffered serious leg injuries, and a mother and her three young children have been injured, in a head-on crash south-west of Brisbane early on Friday.
The 21-year-old was airlifted to hospital, after being trapped in the wreckage of her car, which collided head-on with a car carrying the other woman and her children just before 5am on the Cunningham Highway.
The crash occurred about 45 kilometres north-east of Warwick.
A Queensland Ambulance spokesman said emergency crews had to cut the 21-year-old from the wreckage, where she had been trapped by her legs.
Suffering serious injuries, she was taken to hospital in Toowoomba by air ambulance.
An ambulance spokesman said the 30-year-old driver of the other car was taken to Warwick hospital by road ambulance suffering back and neck pain.
Her children, aged three, four and six, were also treated for minor injuries, and taken to hospital with her.
A Queensland Police Service spokesman said the highway was closed for much of the morning, with traffic diversions in place.
