POLICE have issued an infringement notice to a woman they say had just taken a 'selfie' on her mobile phone when she crashed her vehicle outside Kumbia.

The 24-year-old lost control of the vehicle on the Bunya Hwy at 6.30am.

Kingaroy Police officer-in-charge Senior Sergeant Duane Frank said police alleged she used her phone while driving.

"The phone was located in the vehicle by police. Phone checks revealed a selfie had just been taken," Snr Sgt Frank said.

The woman was taken to Kingaroy Hospital with head injuries.

She was issued a notice for failing to have proper control of the vehicle.

Snr Sgt Frank said the crash highlighted the dangers of using mobile phones while driving.
