RACQ LifeFlight Rescue airlifts injured rider after motocross accident

Toowoomba’s RACQ LifeFlight Rescue helicopter has airlifted a rider, after he was injured while attempting a jump, on a motocross track.

The chopper was called to the scene, in the South Burnett, around 7.20pm last night (Monday 28th).

The aeromedical crew worked with Queensland Ambulance Service (QAS) paramedics at the scene, to treat the man for multiple suspected fractures.

He was then loaded into the aircraft and flown to Toowoomba Hospital, under the care of an RACQ LifeFlight Rescue Critical Care Doctor and QAS Flight Paramedic.

The rider, aged in his 30s, travelled in a stable condition.

It was the second time RACQ LifeFlight Rescue was called to the track yesterday, after the Bundaberg-based helicopter was also tasked to the location just hours earlier.
