Pair thrown from bike in smash

A 27-YEAR-OLD woman suffering suspected internal bleeding was rushed to hospital after the motorcycle on which she was a passenger collided with a ute in Maryborough’s CBD yesterday.

Emergency services were called to the smash at the intersection of Kent and Lennox streets about 10.20am.

Constable Matt Walker said the vehicles were approaching the intersection from opposite sides of Kent Street when one turned in front of the other.

He said the 26-year-old motorcyclist and his 27-year-old female passenger – both from Maryborough – were thrown from the bike.

The impact of the collision smashed the utility’s passenger side window.

The 27-year-old woman was rushed to Hervey Bay Hospital “in a lot of pain” from a suspected broken pelvis and internal bleeding while the 26-year-old man was taken to Maryborough Hospital with head and facial injuries.

The driver of the ute, a Maryborough man, was not injured.

Const. Walker said that, because of their injuries, police were yet to take statements from the two motorcyclists.
