CRASH: Moped and 4x4 collide on Takalvan St: man taken to hospital

UPDATE: Moped "pushed along" by 4WD in Talkalvan St crash

UPDATE: THE Toyota Prado hit the moped from behind, pushing its elderly rider along for a brief but terrifying ride - before stopping short of running him over.

After the 75-year-old man fell off the moped, the bike continued on its own for about 100m, just south of the intersection of Takalvan and Walker Sts.

The accident happened at 11.20am yesterday morning as both vehicles were travelling towards the CBD on the left lane of Takalvan St.

Police have spoken with the 37-year-old driver of the 4x4, who tested negative for alcohol and drugs.

"We are still trying to work out how it happened," Bundaberg Police spokesman Tim Louth said. "We can say that it is not being treated as a road rage incident."

Anyone who witnessed the collision is urged to contact police on 4153 9111.

EMERGENCY Services were called to a collision between a 4x4 and a moped on Takalvan St at 11.20am.

A Queensland Ambulance officer was one of the first on scene as he was picking up supplies in a near by shop.

QAS spokesman Martin Kelly said a 75-year-old man was riding a moped when it collided with a grey Toyota Prado but at this stage was not sure on other details.

"The elderly man came off his bike which caused leg injuries," he said.

"One of our officers were in a near by store picking up supplies and was notified straight away."

He said the man was taken to hospital with a severe leg injury.

"It is believed he has an upper leg fracture," he said.
