Woman airlifted after motorbike accident

The Toowoomba-based RACQ LifeFlight Rescue helicopter has airlifted a 24 year old woman after a motorbike accident on the Cunningham Highway this morning.

The crew was tasked to the scene at 10:50 this morning after the woman, who was out riding with friends, failed to properly negotiate a corner and crashed.

She suffered suspected pelvic and abdominal injuries.

The woman was treated by Queensland Ambulance Service paramedics who transported her by road to a nearby helipad.

The LifeFlight aeromedical crew then airlifted the woman to the Toowoomba Base Hospital.

She travelled in a stable condition.

2016-17 was a record year for LifeFlight for lifesaving missions with its aeromedical crews, community helicopters and Air Ambulance jets performing a record 5,342 missions throughout Queensland and around the world.
