Rider airlifted after crashing into barbed wire fence
A man has been airlifted to Rockhampton Hospital after his quad bike went through a barbed wire fence.
Paramedics received the call around 9am to a private property in Alsace, a rural locality between Middlemount and Dingo.
The male in his 50s sustained significant lacerations to his neck and superficial injuries from the fall from the quad bike at high speed.
He was treated by paramedics on the scene before being transported to a rest stop on the Fitzroy Development Rd where the RACQ Capricorn Rescue crew met them.
He was airlifted in a stable condition.
