Man airlifted after quad bike rollover

A man in his 60s has been airlifted to hospital with suspected severe chest injuries by the Surat Gas Aero-Medical Service after a quad bike accident late this afternoon.

The man and his son had been working cattle on quad bikes north of Roma.

The cattleman was injured trying to chase down a beast that had broken away from the herd.

It’s believed his quad bike rolled breaking his collarbone and inflicting potentially serious chest injuries.


The Surat Gas Aero-Medical helicopter was tasked to the property from Roma just after 5.30pm.


The CareFlight specialist medical crew on board and QAS on scene spent more than 40 minutes stablising the patient before he was flown to Toowoomba Hospital for further treatment.


He travelled in a stable condition.
