The Toowoomba-based RACQ LifeFlight Rescue helicopter has airlifted a teenager to hospital, after he was injured in a motorcycle accident on Boonah Rathdowney Road at Coochin on Saturday.

It was believed he was riding as a pillion passenger on the back of a motorcycle when a vehicle collided with the bike.

The rescue chopper was sent to the scene about midday.

Once on scene the LifeFlight Critical Care Doctor and Queensland Ambulance Service flight paramedic helped QAS paramedics treat the teenager.

He suffered neck injuries and was airlifted to the Queensland Children's Hospital in a stable condition.

A man in his 40s who had been driving the motor bike, was taken to Princess Alexandra Hospital with chest and pelvic injuries.

A spokesman for QAS said the bike collided with a car containing four people including a man in his 40s, a woman in her 20s and two children who had all suffered minor injuries. The four people in the car were taken to Ipswich hospital.

An RACQ LifeFlight Rescue spokesperson said helicopters had attended five other incidents involving motor vehicles, motorbikes or pedestrians since Friday afternoon.
