Fraser Coast man in hospital after quad bike crash

A BIDWILL man had to be airlifted to hospital after suffering a broken leg in a quad bike crash.

The 47-year-old man was riding his quad bike on an off-road track when he collided with a tree and was thrown from his bike.

He broke his leg and suffered other injuries in the crash.

He was treated by Queensland Ambulance Service paramedics before being airlifted by RACQ LifeFlight Rescue to the Sunshine Coast University Hospital in a stable condition.

The mission was the fifth in three days for the Bundaberg-based RACQ LifeFlight Rescue helicopter, including four primary missions where patients were airlifted from the scene of accidents and one inter-hospital transfer.
