A woman who thought a Good Samaritan had stopped to help her after her car broke down on a highway has been rushed to hospital after the man suddenly attacked her.
Police say the woman pulled to the side of a road on the outskirts of Warwick, south east Queensland, at about 6.15pm on Tuesday when her white Nissan Patrol started to break down.
A man driving a white ute with a silver tray then stopped in front of her car and offered to help.
After the two worked under the hood of the car for a few minutes, the woman walked to the back of the four wheel drive.

The man is described as white, aged between 30 to 40, with a chubby build, short dark hair and full dark beard and approximately 175cms tall.
He was wearing a dark blue tradie shirt with sleeves rolled up, matching shorts and tradie style boots.
