UPDATE: Witness describes shock moment ute flipped

UPDATE: An eyewitness has described the moment a ute flipped on Boat Harbour Dr, trapping a man inside.

Paula, who did not wish to give her last name, was on the other side of the busy road when the crash happened.

"Something clipped, I heard it and he was airborne, came down off the road and flipped," Paula said.

"He was locked in there, he was unconscious."

Paula and another passerby, David, rushed to the man's side.

She lay down beside him, clearing gravel and boxes from the ute's window.

"We couldn't undo the seatbelt because we didn't want him to fall so we just talked to him, tried to keep him conscious and kept his airways clear," she said.

The crash happened near the site of council roadworks.

Paula said the council workers "deserved a medal" for the way they responded.

She said one worker was lucky not to have been crushed by the airborne ute.

"There was a young council worker, he's got an angel on his shoulder," Paula said.

"By rights, he should have been under that but somehow it went over him."
