A RUN of in­ci­dents around the re­gion at the week­end kept Queens­land Fire and Emer­gency Ser­vices crews busy.

The sole oc­cu­pant of a ve­hi­cle which rolled on the Dray­ton Con­nec­tion Rd at Vale View about 1.15pm on Satur­day es­caped with­out in­jury.

Fire­fight­ers righted the ve­hi­cle as Queens­land Am­bu­lance paramedics as­sessed the ve­hi­cle’s oc­cu­pant.

It was the first in a spate of week­end in­ci­dents across the Toowoomba and Dar­ling Downs re­gion.

One per­son was taken to hos­pi­tal with in­juries af­ter they were trapped un­der a car in Mid­dle Ridge about 6.40pm on Satur­day.

The per­son was pinned un­der the ve­hi­cle but was re­leased by the time QFES crews ar­rived on scene.

They were taken to Toowoomba Hos­pi­tal with mi­nor in­juries.

At least one per­son was as­sessed by paramedics at the scene of a two-ve­hi­cle crash on the War­rego Hwy about 10km east of Dalby about 10.35pm on Satur­day.

There was no trans­port to hos­pi­tal as a re­sult of the in­ci­dent.

A car­a­van caught fire about 11.50am on Sun­day on Ac­ton Vale Stud Rd but it was ex­tin­guished be­fore crews ar­rived on scene.

Queens­land Am­bu­lance paramedics were called as a pre­cau­tion but did not trans­port to hos­pi­tal.

About two hours later Dalby QFES crews were called to re­ports smoke was gush­ing from the dash­board of a car on Blax­land Rd at Bowenville about 2pm.

The car was fully alight but QFES ex­tin­guished it a short time later.

With wet weather fore­cast for the rest of the week, driv­ers are urged to drive to the con­di­tions and be mind­ful of road haz­ards.
