Around 8.04pm Monday, a 23-year-old woman sustained leg and spinal injuries and a 27-year-old man suffered shoulder, leg and arm injuries in a motorcycle accident at the intersection of New England Highway and Tracey Ln at The Summit.

Stanthorpe Police said the man claimed a truck was involved in the accident however there was no evidence to suggest another vehicle was present and the investigation is ongoing.

This followed another crash two hours earlier, at the corner of Sugarloaf Rd and Pioneers Pde, where a car crashed into a tree.

The male driver was assessed by paramedics but did not need to be taken to hospital.
