Aussie bike cops crash while escorting Prince Charles

Charles was being escorted to the Commonwealth Games opening ceremony

Two Australian motorbike feds crashed into one another while they were escorting Prince Charles to the Commonwealth Games opening ceremony.

Charles and husband Camilla both arrived at Carrara Stadium on time despite the collision on the Gold Coast Highway at Southport about 7.30pm.

Police say a 27-year-old officer was transported to the Gold Coast University Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries while the other officer, 42, was transported to hospital as a precaution.

"Police planning for motorcades includes all contingencies and the traffic crash did not impede or impact on the movement to Carrara," Queensland police said in a statement.
