Two seriously injured after crashing stolen motorbike, Gold Coast

Two men have been hospitalised in serious conditions after trying to flee a break and enter attempt in Kingsholme.

It’s understood they were attempting to break into a home on Upper Ormeau Road around 6.00pm, when they were caught by neighbours.

One of the neighbours reportedly copped a split lip after the would-be robbers hit him in the face with a bag, while another ended up with a broken nose in a scuffle.

The two alleged offenders then fled the scene on a motorbike, but only made it a short way down the road before losing control of the vehicle and crashing.

They’ve both been taken to the Gold Coast University Hospital in serious but stable conditions.

One sustained chest injuries and was transported in a serious but stable condition to Gold Coast University Hospital with High Acuity Response Unit on board.

The second patient was transported stable to Gold Coast University Hospital.

The forensic crash unit is investigating.
