Teen girl run over by ute in 'horrifying accident'

A TEENAGER was airlifted by RACQ CareFlight Rescue after a horrifying accident on a property at Kogan, west of Dalby, where the girl was run over by a ute.

It was the second time in just six hours that CareFlight's Toowoomba-based rescue helicopter was called to an accident involving a ute in the Darling Downs town.

The accident happened after the girl opened the ute's door to get out when the driver began reversing.

She fell and was run over.

The girl suffered suspected injuries to her right shoulder and pelvis.

The Toowoomba RACQ CareFlight Rescue helicopter was tasked to airlift the injured teen at 8pm.

She was flown to Toowoomba Hospital in a stable condition.
