    A LEARNER motorcyclist without a helmet has survived a crash in Victoria that catapulted him 80 metre through the air, police said.

    The police spotted the 19 year-old from Geelong on his bike at an intersection but not wearing a helmet about 2.30am (AEST) today.
    When the police approached, asking him to pull over, he refused, made a quick turn and took off at high speed.

    Police did not pursue him and later found that he had crashed his motorcycle in Bell Post Hill, a Geelong suburb, about 5km from where he was first spotted.

    "It appears that his motorcycle collided with a steel railing on the side of the road, catapulting him 80 metres," a police spokeswoman said.

    The teenager, who suffered a serious leg injury and a minor head injury, was taken to Geelong Hospital.

    Police said he was riding a 600cc motorcycle. Learner riders cannot ride a motorcycle with an engine capacity greater than 260cc.
    Police are investigating, and expect to lay charges.
