NZ Newswire logoNZ Newswire 1/08/2016

A motorcyclist has serious leg and shoulder injuries but is lucky to be alive after falling off his bike and being hit by an oncoming car.

The 29-year-old was airlifted to Waikato Hospital after the crash on State Highway 25 north of Whangamata on Monday morning.

Rescuers say it's fortunate the car that struck him was a SUV with a high wheel base, otherwise his injuries could have been a lot more serious.
