The patients, now reported as two females and a male according to the Queensland Ambulance Service, were able to exit their vehicles by themselves but told paramedics they were experiencing chest pains, possibly as a result of impact with their seatbelts and airbags going off.

One of the vehicles involved in the crash has been towed from the scene and the Dawson Hwy has been fully reopened to traffic.

One turning lane on Aerodrome Rd remains closed as firefighters wait for the tow truck to return to remove the second vehicle.

An Ergon Energy crew has arrived at the scene and disconnected power from a set of traffic lights that were knocked down in the crash.
