A young boy has been flown to hospital in a stable condition after he was hit by a car and lost consciousness in a street in West Gosford earlier today.

The Mounties Care CareFlight Helicopter was tasked by NSW Ambulance around 12pm and landed shortly after in a netball court to meet the patient.

NSW Ambulance paramedics provided initial treatment at the scene and conveyed the patient to meet the helicopter team.

CareFlight’s specialist doctor and NSW Ambulance critical care paramedic performed a clinical assessment on the boy and provided additional treatment.

The boy was flown to Westmead Children’s Hospital in a stable condition.
