It wasn’t the only motorbike incident LifeFlight crews attended yesterday.
Later in the afternoon the Sunshine Coast-based RACQ LifeFlight Rescue helicopter was called to the South Burnett region.
A motocross rider was taken to hospital, after he was injured in a crash.
It’s believed the male patient, aged in his 30s, had been riding a motorbike when he lost control and crashed into a tree.
