The truck came to a rest on its side and about 30 logs were spilt across the road, cutting it off.
A Queensland Ambulance spokesman said one person, believed to be in their 60s, was taken to Kingaroy Hospital with chest injuries.
They were in a stable condition.
Police are waiting for tow trucks to arrive to clear the scene, and are advising drivers to expect lengthy delays.
