Man in hospital after Peak Downs Highway crash

UPDATE: A Mackay man is in hospital after a single-vehicle rollover on the Eton Range.

A Queensland Ambulance spokeswoman said the man, aged in his 60s, was taken to Mackay Base Hospital in a stable condition.

He was transported for spinal precautions, she said.

Authorities confirmed the man was the sole occupant of the vehicle that rolled on the Peak Downs Highway about 3km from the top on the Nebo side about 9.15am.

Initial reports had indicated four people were inside the vehicle but it was later clarified as one person inside.

The crash blocked the highway but it has since re-opened after the vehicle was towed from the scene.

Motorists were urged to take care if travelling in the area.
