Horror crash victim fights to live

A GOLD Coast man is fighting for his life in Bundaberg Hospital after being thrown from his car in a traffic crash near Gin Gin.

The 38-year-old Molendinar man was found unconscious, following the smash about 13km north of Gin Gin, on the Bruce Hwy yesterday morning.

Witnesses reported seeing the man driving the Toyota Landcruiser erratically prior to the crash about 6.30am.

Bundaberg Police Sergeant Steve Schultz said: "Witnesses at the time advised police the vehicle was driving in a dangerous manner prior to the incident."

He said the man, who suffered serious head injuries, was airlifted to Gin Gin before being driven to Bundaberg Hospital by an ambulance crew.

"Police attended the Bundaberg Hospital where a blood specimen was taken," he said.

"The results of that will take about six weeks."

Sgt Schultz said when police contacted the man's ex-wife, she told them she believed her brother had also been travelling in the car.

"So a search was conducted by the SES to eliminate the possibility there was a second victim thrown from the vehicle," he said.

"That proved to be negative."

Investigations into the incident are continuing.
