A Gympie police spokeswoman said the man, 37, and his sons were travelling in a silver Ford Territory on the old Bruce Hwy off ramp around 11pm when they hit a broken down Kia Carnival parked on the side of the road.

"The car hit the rear of the parked car, rolled several times and landed on the left hand side of the road," the spokeswoman said.

The father and boys were in stable condition when transported.

Earlier a 63-year-old man was taken to Gympie Hospital following a single vehicle crash (pictured) at Langshaw just after 9pm.

Police and paramedics attended the scene near Coppermine Creek Rd and Eel Creek Rd where the car was at a 45 degree angle down a bank with some tyres missing from the car's wheel rims.

Police can not provide any further information at this time.
