The RAC Rescue helicopter was dispatched to Toodyay Road just before 12pm to take the man to RPH for treatment.
The extent of his injuries is unknown.
The news comes less than 24 hours after two people were taken to hospital after a hiking accident north of Perth.
At around 2pm on Friday, a teenager was hiking at the Bells Rapids Park when he slipped and fell down a ravine and suffered head and arm injuries, prompting a major two-hour rescue operation.
A medical volunteer who was assisting with the rescue was also injured during the rescue.
Both men were taken to hospital for treatment, where the teenager remains in serious condition.
