Man in hospital after motorbike accident on rural road

A 39-year-old man has suffered incapacitating injuries after being thrown from his motorbike on a rural country lane.

The rider was air-lifted to a local hospital shortly after the incident where he remains in a critical condition according to a spokesperson from the hospital.

The rider was believed to have been traveling south when he attempted to pass a car in a no-pass zone.

When he tried to re-enter the lane he failed to negotiate the curve and was thrown into the ditch at the side of the road.

The man landed approximately 15 feet from where he came off his bike and suffered head, neck and chest injuries.

He wasn’t wearing a helmet at the time of the incident and it is unknown if alcohol was a factor in the accident.

Excessive speed for the conditions and failure to have control of the motorbike were deemed to be the cause of the accident.
