She said it appeared their 2014 silver Mitsubish Triton utility hit the gravel shoulder of the road and the driver lost control, causing the vehicle to roll several times and hit a tree.

The 41-year-old driver and the 23-year-old passenger were trapped in the wreckage and had to be freed by emergency services.

They were taken to Geraldton Hospital and flown by Royal Flying Doctor Service to Royal Perth Hospital.
