Man injured in excavator rollover north west of Mackay
A MAN is in hospital after being involved in an excavator rollover at Mt Jukes.
A Queensland Ambulance Service spokeswoman said the man was injured when the machinery rolled on a private property, 34km north west of Mackay, at 10.49am.
She said the man, believed to be the driver, avoided being caught underneath the excavator but did sustain a shoulder injury.
"I don't think there was any entrapment," she said.
It is unknown how large the excavator was.
She said the man was taken to Mackay Base Hospital in a stable condition.
