Two injured teenagers have been airlifted to hospital after separate motorbike crashes at a South Burnett motocross park on Wednesday.

The rescue helicopter was sent to the scene shortly after 1:00pm.

The aeromedical team worked alongside paramedics from the Queensland Ambulance Service (QAS), to stabilise the pair for their flight to hospital.

The patients – one female and one male – had suffered upper body injuries and were flown in a stable condition to the Sunshine Coast University Hospital.

RACQ LifeFlight Rescue has now airlifted seven people – including four from the South Burnett – who have been injured in separate motorbike crashes since the beginning of the school holidays.
