RESCUES UNDERWAY: Girl in ravine and five-patient car crash

UPDATE: Emergency services went into rescue mode after five people were injured in a car crash within minutes of a teenage girl falling into a ravine.

Paramedics were called to Crows Nest Falls at 2.55pm to rescue a 14-year-old girl who had fallen into a deep ravine within the national park.

The location's remoteness meant rescue helicopters were originally tasked to the scene, though they were later called off.

It is believed the girl was on a school camping trip.

Rescuers are still on the scene.

Reports of a serious crash near Pampas came in to the Queensland Ambulance Service call centre at 3.09pm.

Ambulances transferred three patients to Dalby Hospital.

Two others were airlifted with serious injuries by helicopter - one to the Princess Alexandra Hospital in Brisbane and the other to Gold Coast Hospital.
