EMER­GENCY ser­vices were called to the scene of a multi-ve­hi­cle crash on Wed­nes­day af­ter­noon.

The crash hap­pened about 3.45pm on State Farm Rd, Biloela.

Both po­lice and am­bu­lance at­tended.

A spokesper­son from Queens­land Po­lice said it was a multi-ve­hi­cle crash but ex­actly how many cars in­volved was un­known at this stage.

One fe­male was trans­ported to the Biloela Hospi­tal with mi­nor in­juries caused by a seat­belt.

The road re­mained open dur­ing the crash with mo­torists hav­ing to slow down to pass the crash zone.

The crash comes dur­ing Road Safety Week which kicked off on Mon­day.

It prompts driv­ers to make bet­ter choices to make roads safer.

Last year, 247 peo­ple died and 6450 peo­ple were hurt or se­ri­ously in­jured in ac­ci­dents on Queens­land roads.

Thirty-five pedes­tri­ans died and 357 were hurt or se­ri­ously in­jured in crashes on Queens­land roads.

Rock­hamp­ton based Su­per­in­ten­dent Ron Van Saane helped kick off Cen­tral Queens­land Road Safety Week and said the “road rules re­fresh” fo­cus gave the com­mu­nity an op­por­tu­nity to brush up on their knowl­edge of road rules and have safety dis­cus­sions.
