Man in Rotorua hospital after quad bike crash

A 40-year-old New Zealand man on holiday in Taupo is in a stable condition in Rotorua Hospital after a quad bike accident yesterday.

St John paramedics were called to the incident at Taupo Quad Adventures, about 23km north of Taupo about 1pm.

A St John Taupo spokesman said the man was taken to Taupo Hospital with a possible concussion before he was taken to Rotorua Hospital for further tests.

A Taupo Quad Adventures spokesman said the man rode the bike back to the base but said he was unsure as to where he was so staff called an ambulance as a precaution.

He said a full investigation of the incident would begin tomorrow.
