Man flown to hospital after being partially impaled by a star picket in southern Queensland

A man was flown to the hospital following an accident with a quad bike and a metal star picket in southern Queensland.

The incident happened in the Toowoomba region on Thursday morning.

LifeFlight said the man in his 20s ‘drove over the picket when it pushed through the rear tyre, mud guard and the seat he was sitting on and into his left buttock.’

The rescue chopper landed at the scene at around 11am.

The man was treated at the scene by ambulance paramedics before being transported to Royal Brisbane and Women’s Hospital via the LifeFlight rescue helicopter.
