The patient was then transported to the helicopter, when it landed in a nearby field.

The man, aged in his 70s, was then flown to Sunshine Coast University Hospital, under the care of an RACQ LifeFlight Rescue Critical Care Doctor and a QAS Flight Paramedic.

He was transported in a stable condition, with suspected pelvic injuries.
