A MOTORCYCLIST was taken by air ambulance to hospital in a serious condition after a collision with a car towing a trailer in High Street, Broadford on Sunday.
Paramedics, police and an air ambulance were called to the scene in front of Broadford’s railway station, after the collision which occurred between 4pm and 4.30pm.
An Ambulance Victoria spokesperson said the man in his 30s suffered head and arm injuries and was taken via ambulance helicopter to the Royal Melbourne Hospital in a serious but stable condition.
Witnesses said the air ambulance departed the Broadford oval just after 6pm.
Broadford police attended the scene, and First Constable Andrew Callander said there were no suspicions of foul play surrounding the collision.
“I don’t think it’s a particularly high-risk [location for collisions], just a distracted rider,” First Const Callander said.
“We don’t know exactly what happened, we just talked to witnesses and there is no footage from anywhere. The investigation is still ongoing.
“Just be aware of your surroundings and drive safely going through townships.”
