Four separate car crashes on Gold Coast roads

It’s been a busy night for emergency services on Gold Coast roads, with four separate traffic crashes last night.

Paramedics were first called to Mermaid Beach around 4.30pm, after reports an elderly man had crashed his car into a building at an address on the Gold Coast Highway.

They treated the man – in his 70s – for minor head and arm injuries at the scene briefly, before taking him to hospital in a stable condition.


It’s believed he accidentally crashed into a wall in the building’s car park.

Emergency services were then called to an address in Ashmore, after reports of a car and motorbike crash around 5.15pm.

A man and woman who were both riding the motorbike, were both injured in the crash on Cotlew street.

Paramedics treated the man – in his 30s – for a significant leg injury, and the woman – in her 40s – for neck and abdominal pain, before taking the pair to the Gold Coast University Hospital in stable conditions.

A short time later, emergency services had another call out to Kingsholme following reports of a single vehicle rollover in bushland.

It’s believed a man – in his 30s – had his car roll down an embankment shortly after 6.00pm, and suffered face and neck injuries.

He was also taken to the Gold Coast University Hospital in a stable condition.

Around the same time, paramedics were called to another single-vehicle rollover in Burleigh Heads.

A man, aged in his 30s or 40s was treated for cuts and abrasions after his car crashed through a fence on Tsipura Drive around 6.10pm.

He’s believed to be in a stable condition at the Gold Coast University Hospital as well.
