A 59-years-old man sustained shoulder, abdominal and suspected spinal injuries after he was struck by a vehicle whilst riding a mower off Campbell Street last Monday night.
Initial investigations indicate that the man was using a ride-on mower on land behind businesses on Campbell and Rutledge Lane at about 7pm on Monday when he was struck by a vehicle.
Senior Constable Mick Hannant said investigations are still continuing into what led up to the incident.
He said the driver of the vehicle, a 42-years-old man, was charged with dangerous use of a motor vehicle.
The 59-years-old man was transported by ambulance to Toowoomba Base Hospital in a stable condition with multiple injuries which are not considered life threatening.
