Car crashes off road near Mt Mee

A MAN is being treated for possible spinal injuries after his car plunged almost 30-feet down a steep embankment north of Dayboro on Sunday night.

Rescue crews scrambled to Mount Mee Rd at Delaneys Creek after 7pm following reports a car had veered off the road and fallen over the side of a cliff.

However, when they arrived, they found the car - with a boat and trailer attached - had bumped down a steep, but not sheer, 20-feet to 30-feet embankment.

A Queensland Fire and Rescue spokesman said "it wasn't too bad in the end," adding that a fire truck with rescue lines was not required to retrieve anyone.

The man - whose age and suburb is unknown at this stage - has been taken to Caboolture Hospital. It is unclear whether he was the driver.

It is believed two other occupants were also treated at the scene for minor neck pain and wrist injuries, but they did not need transport.

It is unclear why the car left the road, however the stretch is notorious for accidents.
