Man flown to hospital after motorbike crash

A MAN has been airlifted to hospital after a motorbike crash at Clothiers Creek this afternoon.

Emergency services were called to Clothiers Creek Rd shortly after 1pm.

A NSW Ambulance spokesman said one man, believed to be in his late 60s, was taken by Westpac Rescue Life Saver Helicopter to Gold Coast University Hospital.

The spokesman said the rider appeared to have suffered facial and hip injuries.

Tweed District Rescue Squad spokesman Jamie Stoddart said rescue crews had to conduct a vertical rescue to retrieve the injured man, after his bike crashed 15m down an embankment into thick bush.
