Three riders have been injured in getaways from police and a crime scene in the past week on the Gold Coast.
A rider who evaded Gold Coast Police about 7pm yesterday (29 November 2019) was later injured in a crash with a car at Broadbeach Waters.
The crash occurred at the intersection of Rio Vista and Hooker Boulevards, where the motorcycle and a car had collided.
The rider was transported to Gold Coast University Hospital with serious, non-life threatening injuries.
The driver of the car was not physically injured.
Police say it was a “traffic intercept” but the rider allegedly failed to stop.
“Police did not follow,” they say.
The man remains in hospital and has yet not been charged.

It follows an incident earlier in the week where two men were hospitalised in serious conditions after trying to flee on a stolen motorcycle after an alleged break-in attempt in Kingsholme.
Police believe they were attempting to break into a home on Upper Ormeau Road around 6pm, when they were caught by neighbours.
One of the neighbours reportedly was hit in the face with a bag wielded by one of the mean and another suffered a broken nose in the scuffle.
The two alleged offenders fled the scene on a motorbike but crashed a little way down the road.
They’ve were taken to the Gold Coast University Hospital in serious but stable conditions.
A 26-year-old Logan Central man and a 33-year-old Logan Central man were charged with assault occasioning bodily harm while armed, armed robbery and burglary.
