A man has sustained a head injury when his motorcycle and a bus collided on Stafford Street, Penrith, earlier this afternoon.

CareFlight’s Rapid Response Helicopter was tasked by NSW Ambulance at 4:15pm and landed 15 minutes later in Jamison Park. NSW Ambulance paramedics were providing initial treatment for the motorcyclist when CareFlight’s clinical team arrived at the scene of the incident.

CareFlight’s specialist doctor and NSW Ambulance critical care paramedic performed a clinical assessment on the man and conducted an ultrasound to assess his injuries. They intubated the patient and placed him in an induced coma to stabilise his condition.

The man was taken by road in a critical condition with NSW Ambulance to Westmead Hospital under ongoing treatment from CareFlight’s clinical team.
