A TRUCK veered across the Bunya Highway and ploughed through a fence before rolling over in a paddock Tuesday afternoon about 10 minutes south of Bell.

The incident occurred about 1.30pm, with emergency services called to the scene.

The vehicle had two occupants at the time of the incident, with the male driver having to be removed from the cabin by emergency services when they arrived.

A young female passenger was able to free herself from the vehicle earlier.

Both were transported to the Dalby Hospital with serious, but non life-threatening injuries.

Police are continuing to investigate the incident and the cause as to why the truck left the road in the first place.

Less than 24 hours before this accident, another vehicle left the road just outside of Bell on Kleinshmidts Rd.

The two accidents come just days after local police urged all motorists to take extra care when driving the school holidays.
