Two people are lucky to be alive, after an alleged drink driver caused a serious crash at Kowanyama.
Police say an Isuzu tip truck has overtaken another vehicle towing a boat on Topsy Road around 2.30pm on Sunday.
Investigations indicate that the truck has then clipped the front of the tow vehicle causing it to roll several times, ejecting two people.
A 44-year-old Atherton man and a 16-year-old Forsayth boy were both flown to Cairns Hospital with fractured bones and lacerations.
The driver of the tip truck was required to provide a roadside breath test which allegedly returned a positive result.
He was taken to Kowanyama Police Station where he returned a positive reading of 0.149 per cent BAC, nearly three times the legal limit.
The 37-year-old Redlynch man has been charged with drink driving and is expected to appear in the Kowanyama Magistrates Court on February 16.
Further investigations are continuing in relation to the traffic crash.
