Bike rider airlifted after crash

A 19-YEAR-OLD man is in a stable condition after he was airlifted to the Princess Alexandra Hospital after being involved in a single motorbike accident at Yarnolds Road, Amiens, at 3pm Saturday.

A Queensland Ambulance Service (QAS) spokesman said QAS Stanthorpe attended the accident scene and said the male patient had no feeling in his lower body.

He was then handed over to RACQ CareFlight.

Once on scene, the CareFlight medical team helped treat the man, who was suffering from a suspected spinal injury after coming off his trial bike on a fire trail.

The patient was airlifted to the PA Hospital in a serious but stable condition.

Yesterday afternoon, a spokesperson for Princess Alexandra Hospital said the man was in a stable condition.
