RACQ CareFlight Rescue’s Gold Coast helicopter was tasked to the scene shortly after 7am with a Critical Care Doctor and Intensive Care Flight Paramedic on-board.


RACQ CareFlight Rescue Aircrewman Ryan Purchase said the man tried to swerve to miss the ute.

“He came off his motorbike and hit the ute’s bonnet and windscreen,” he said.

The rider was transferred to Gold Coast University Hospital in a serious condition.
