A 53-YEAR-OLD man escaped serious injury after crashing his hang-glider into a hill near Ma Ma Creek south-west of Gatton Sunday afternoon.
 

A Queensland Ambulance Service (QAS) spokesman in Toowoomba said a QAS crew had been despatched to the area just before 4pm on reports of a man crashing a hang glider into a hill.
 

A gust of wind was believed to have blown the man's craft off course and into a hill.
 

The man sustained a dislocated shoulder and abrasions in the incident and was taken to Toowoomba Hospital in a stable condition.
