A Police media spokesman said a gold coloured Ford Ranger, a grey Honda Oddessy and a gold Mitsubishi 380 were involved in the incident.

Reports from the scene described the crash as one vehicle braking and the other two running into it from behind.

"Police have collected statements from those involved and are investigating the incident," the police media spokesman said.

"No charges have been laid yet."

A Queensland Ambulance spokesman said paramedics treated a female in her late teens, who was a passenger in one of the cars, for a back injury.

"A man in his 20s suffered head and neck injuries and a woman in her 30s suffered abdominal pain," the Ambulance spokesman said.

"They were all taken to Gladstone Hospital by ambulance in a stable condition."

INITIAL REPORTS, July 31.

A Queensland Ambulance Service spokesman said two ambulances were used to transport the patients.

"There were three patients transported to hospital for spinal injury precautions and one patient in a stable condition," he said.

The spokesman said the patients were three children and an adult.

Some of the other people assessed at the scene declined to be transported to hospital and were suffering minor injuries.
