Two hospital flights in two days from Coast motocross park
A teenager has been flown to hospital, the second motocross rider in two days to be taken out from a hinterland motocross park.
The male teen was flown to Sunshine Coast University Hospital from a motocross trail off Pullen Ln, Kenilworth.
A Queensland Ambulance spokesman said paramedics assessed one patient, for chest, leg and pelvic injuries and RACQ LifeFlight Rescue helicopter staff advised the teen was flown with a possible spinal injury, after the crash about 10:20am.
The rescue helicopter arrived on the scene just after 11am.
Paramedics worked with the aeromedical team to treat the teenage boy, who was flown to Sunshine Coast University Hospital in a stable condition.
A Queensland Police Service spokeswoman said police did not attend the scene.
It was the second call-out to Kenilworth of the weekend for the rescue chopper.
On Saturday morning a man in his 40s crashed while it was understood he'd been attempting a jump on his motorbike.
The man suffered chest injuries in the crash, which happened about 9.45am Saturday, and he was flown to Sunshine Coast University Hospital in a stable condition.
