A motorcycle stunt show on the Gold Coast has spiraled out of control after an artist ran his motorcycle into the crowd, injuring several people.
The rider was driving down a stunt ramp in front of the McDonald’s restaurant on Cavill Avenue – the heart of Surfers Paradise – around 5:20 p.m. Thursday when they lost control and hit a guardrail.
The bike and guardrail then slammed into the crowd, injuring three people who were treated at the scene and one of them was subsequently taken to hospital, Queensland Ambulance Service confirmed.
