BLACK Duck Valley motorcycle and four-wheel-drive park saw two motorcycle accidents every day over the Anzac Day long weekend.

Last night a 24-year-old woman was in the Toowoomba Hospital emergency department with a probable fractured wrist and knee injury and a 19-year-old man was complaining of neck and back pain.

A Toowoomba Hospital spokesperson said it was unlikely they would be admitted overnight.

On Saturday morning a 39-year-old motorcyclist had a miraculous escape from serious injury after his bike hit a four-wheel-drive at high speed.

Anticipating serious injuries, the Rescue 500 chopper was dispatched along with an ambulance from Gatton.

The rider escaped with grazes and was treated by paramedics at the scene.

"He was very lucky indeed," said acting supervisor Kirk Binnington of the Queensland Ambulance Service.

Shortly afterwards, while the emergency services were still there, another two motorcycle accidents occurred.

Both riders were transported to Toowoomba Base Hospital by ambulance.

One, a 16-year-old boy, suffered a fractured collarbone and  the other rider, a 40-year-old man, sustained suspected spinal injuries.

By late Saturday afternoon the boy had been cleared of neck damage and was being assessed for other possible injuries.

Both were in a stable condition and were later discharged from hospital.

On Friday a motorcyclist was taken to Gatton Hospital with chest soreness and a minor head injury. The hospital would not comment on his condition on Saturday.

Also on Friday, a 31-year-old motorcyclist sustained facial fractures and was stabilised by a doctor at the scene before being taken to Toowoomba Hospital by road.

A total of at least 47 accidents involving injury or death have occurred at the park since January 2007.

A coroner's report into recent deaths there is expected within weeks.
