Man and woman hospitalised after crash at intersection of Old Cleveland Road East and Riverton Drive

Man hospitalised after motorcycle smash at Wellington Point

A man was rushed to Princess Alexandra Hospital last night after a crash in Wellington Point.

Paramedics, including the critical care and the high acuity response unit, responded to a motorcycle and car crash about 7.18pm at the intersection of Old Cleveland Road East and Riverton Drive.

A Queensland Ambulance Service spokesperson said a man aged in his 40s sustained a head injury and was transported in a serious condition to Princess Alexandra Hospital with critical care on board.

A second patient, a female of unknown age, was transported in a stable condition to Redland Hospital for precautionary measures.

Residents took to the Redland City Bulletin Facebook page to have their say.

Mary Oxley Griffiths said: "It's a very dangerous intersection for people trying to turn west from Gordon Street onto Shore Street".

Danielle Platt said: "It is a horrible intersection. I never turn right out of Gordon. Always go further up to the main roundabout. And always advise anyone who visits to never use that way either. I am surprised there at not more accidents here".

Jeremy Green called for more traffic lights on the road.
