Man collides with tree in motorbike crash

RACQ LifeFlight Rescue has airlifted a man in his 20s who has suffered a broken leg and suspected chest injuries after crashing his motorbike into a tree while riding off-road in the Sunshine Coast region.

Queensland Ambulance Service (QAS) paramedics were first on the scene to treat the patient and were met by Sunshine Coast based RACQ LifeFlight Rescue crew just after 1pm.

The patient was then airlifted in a stable condition to Sunshine Coast University Hospital.

The mission was the third in just over 24 hours for RACQ LifeFlight Rescue crews involving motorcycle riders in South East Queensland.
