TWO people have been airlifted to hospital after being trapped inside a crashed vehicle.

LifeFlight's Roma-based Surat Basin Aeromedical Service helicopter transferred the two, a 78-year-old man and 15-year-old boy, after their car rolled about 30km outside Augathella on the Landsborough Hwy about 11.30am on Monday.

Firefighting crews called to the crash had to free the pair from the vehicle.

The 78-year-old received suspected chest injuries and was airlifted by the Royal Flying Doctor Service from the Augathella airport to Brisbane.

The 15-year-old sustained suspected head trauma and was airlifted by the LifeFlight helicopter to Roma Airport, to be transferred to RFDS which then flew him on to Brisbane.

Both patients were taken in a stable condition.
