The Queensland Ambulance Service was called to the scene at 8.54pm last night where the male truck driver was tended to before being transported to Childers hospital with minor injuries to his arm, a QAS spokesperson said.

"It was a truck rollover in the suburb of South Isis and I believe there was a substance spill involved with it so the QFES and QPS were involved in setting up an exclusion zone,” the spokesperson said.

QFES were called to the scene at 8.3pm with a total of seven crews attending,a QFES spokesperson said.

"It was classed as a hazardous zone so we had our scientific team on scene as well,” te spokesperson said.

"It was quite a significant fuel spill and an exclusion zone was set up by plice at 11pm and our breathing apparatus team assisted with earthmoving equipment.”

The truck was righted just before 7am this morning with only a small amount of fuel still leaking.

"So we are scaling down,” the spokesperson said.
