Man's leg severed in crash
A YOUNG male motorcyclist was airlifted to the Royal Brisbane Hospital last night (Monday night) in a bid to save his lower leg after it was severed in a collision with a station wagon on Edinburgh Court at East Deep Creek around 5.15pm.
Police officers rushed to the scene with ice to help preserve the limb, as ambulance officers stabilised him.
Neighbours said they heard “a massive bang like a gunshot” and found the rider lying fully conscious on the side of the road, his motorbike some distance away in a paddock.
The driver of the Ford station wagon had been travelling down the steep, curving road and it appeared the motorcyclist was heading up the hill when the collision occurred.
An off-duty firefighter and off-duty police officer were on the scene within seconds, as a neighbour rang Triple-0.
The AGL helicopter airlifted to Brisbane him about 6.30pm.
