A MAN and woman were left in a serious condition after the motorbike they were riding was allegedly hit by a truck at The Summit.

A spokesman from Queensland Ambulance Services said the woman suffered leg injuries but the injuries sustained by the man were unknown.

A man was assessed by paramedics on scene but he did not require transport to hospital.
