Three taken to hospital after Marcoola crash

UPDATE: A MAN has been freed from the wreckage of a Marcoola crash after being trapped for about an hour.

Paramedics also treated a woman for chest injuries before she was taken in a serious condition to the same hospital.

A woman, 50, was also taken to hospital in stable condition.
