Critically injured motorcycle rider airlifted to hospital

The Sunshine Coast RACQ LifeFlight Rescue helicopter has flown a man to hospital, after he was critically injured in a crash, yesterday afternoon (Weds 29th).

The rescue helicopter was called to the Fraser Coast region at 4pm.

It’s believed the patient, aged in his 60s, had been riding a motorcycle, which collided with a car.

He was reportedly thrown off the bike and landed more than ten metres away.

Queensland Ambulance Service (QAS) paramedics initially treated the man, before transporting him to an airport, south of Hervey Bay, to meet the RACQ LifeFlight Rescue helicopter.

The man was flown to Sunshine Coast University Hospital, suffering critical injuries.

He travelled under the care of an RACQ LifeFlight Rescue Critical Care Doctor and QAS Flight Paramedic.
