A MAN is currently trapped in a vehicle at Blackbutt, following a two vehicle collision on the D'Aguilar Hwy just before 4pm. 

A spokesman from Queensland Police Service said one man was currently trapped in a vehicle. 

"He's got pretty serious injuries, but I don't know more than that," the spokesman said. 

"He will be airlifted as soon as possible by a helicopter, but it's too early to tell who else is involved in the crash or the seriousness of it."
