Motorcyclist airlifted after being thrown from bike

The Toowoomba-based RACQ LifeFlight Rescue helicopter has flown an injured man to hospital after he crashed his motorbike near Killarney earlier today, Saturday 19 September.

The man was riding on Spring Creek Road in The Falls area when he lost control and crashed into a guard rail.

“The impact of the crash threw the man from his bike, where he then landed on the edge of a cliff, centimetres from a 10 metre fall,” a LifeFlight spokeswoman said.

“The rescue chopper was sent to the region shortly before 11am, where the pilot was able to land the aircraft at the (Killarney) showgrounds.

“The Queensland Ambulance Service (QAS) treated the man at the scene, then drove him to the waiting rescue chopper.

“The man, aged in his thirties, had suffered multiple traumatic injuries and was airlifted to Toowoomba Hospital in a serious but stable condition.

“It’s the second motorbike accident RACQ LifeFlight Rescue has been sent to in past 24 hours.

“Last night, the Sunshine Coast RACQ LifeFlight Rescue chopper retrieved a teenager from the South Burnett region.

“The man had sustained multiple injuries after crashing his motorbike.

“He was flown to the Sunshine Coast University Hospital in a stable condition.”
