Child hospitalised after rollover in three car Hwy pileup

POLICE have responded to a three-car pileup in Chinchilla.

At 2.30pm this afternoon a utility with a small child inside flipped on its roof after being involved in a three-car pileup in Chinchilla on the Warrergo Highway.

A police officer on scene said, “a little one,” was in the ute when it flipped.

“No one was injured though,” he said.
