Men hospitalised in separate motorcycle crashes

Rescue helicopters were called out to two separate motorcycle crashes in which young men were hurt while doing jumps.

The Nelson Marlborough Rescue Helicopter took a 21-year-old man to Nelson Hospital with abdominal injuries yesterday after he became entangled in his motorbike when it landed awkwardly during a jump in the Stanley Brook area.

Last night the Lowe Corporation Rescue Helicopter took a 16-year-old youth to Hawke's Bay Regional Hospital with spinal injuries after he fell from a trial bike while during jumps at a rural property at Pourerere.
