A MOTORCYCLIST has been hospitalised after suffering serious head injuries at Tharwa yesterday.

Two ACT intensive care ambulances attended the scene at Tidbinbilla Road, where intensive care paramedics found the man, aged in his early 20s.

He had suffered serious head injuries from a single motorcycle accident.

Supported by ACT Fire & Rescue, the ACT Ambulance Service provided medical assistance at the scene and shortly after rushed the young male to the Canberra Hospital in a critical condition.
