The dramas follow a horror crash on the Bruce Highway at Palmview on the Sunshine Coast in which a truck rolled, trapping two occupants.

The crash on Tuesday resulted in both lanes being blocked as firefighters cut open the cabin to give paramedics access to the injured men.

Late yesterday the two men, both of whom were hospitalised, were described as being in stable conditions.

The 34-year-old driver was flown to Royal Brisbane and Women's Hospital from the scene.

His 29-year-old passenger was taken to Nambour General Hospital.
