Rural go-kart crash leaves paramedics scrambling
GLADSTONE QAS paramedics responded to a call for assistance in the locality of Aldoga this morning following a go-kart incident.
A QAS spokesman said they were called to Mylrea Road at 8.25am to treat a pre-teen male patient who had sustained a significant leg injury.
"The injury was a significant one to the lower leg and originated from a crash with a vehicle early this morning," the spokesman said.

A QAS spokesman said the incident occurred at the intersection of Red Rover and Hanson roads.
The single occupant of the Ford Falcon involved was a 23-year-old man, however, other details of the incident were yet to be filed.
