Police confirm motorcycle crash victim was a learner rider

UPDATE: MORE details have emerged as investigators continue to probe the cause of a motorcycle crash that left one man fighting for his life on Saturday.

A Queensland Police Services spokesperson confirmed this morning that the driver of the motorcycle who suffered life-threatening injuries was a learner rider on either a lesson or his test.

Investigators from the Forensic Crash Unit believe the 21-year-old Toowoomba man crossed onto the wrong side of the road before colliding with a car on the corner of Drayton-Wellcamp Rd and Devine Rd.

He is now in a stable but critical condition after being airlifted to Princess Alexandra Hospital at about noon yesterday.

Investigations are continuing.
