Multiple patients taken to hospital

Three motorbike crashes in 12 hours

There has been three incidents involving motorbikes and cars colliding in the Gold Coast region in less than 12 hours.

A man was hurt in one incident on Southport Nerang Rd, Nerang around 9:45 on Thursday night, while just an hour later
another patient was injured at the corner of Tamborine Oxenford Rd and the Old Pacific Highway in Oxenford.

They were both transported to the Gold Coast University Hospital in stable conditions.

Then on Friday morning a third patient had to be taken to hospital after a crash on Musgrave Avenue in Labrador.

They were also in a stable condition, with minor injuries.

It comes on Fatality Free Friday, the national campaign run on May 26 in an effort to get drivers to take the pledge to stay safe on the road.

So far this year there has been 17 deaths on roads across the Gold Coast and Logan region.

RACQ's Lauren Ritchie said while it was just one day of awareness, the same message applies every day of the year. 

"Every time we get behind the wheel, whether it's Fatality Free Friday or otherwise, we should be looking at our actions; we should be taking really simple, really basic steps.

"Look at driving to the conditions, making sure you're not fatigued, you're not distracted, you're not affected by drugs and alcohol and, of course, you're wearing a seatbelt," said Ms Ritchie.
