A 47-year-old man riding a motorcycle has collided with a vehicle on the Great Western Highway, Emu Plains, earlier this afternoon.

The man temporarily lost consciousness and suffered chest injuries.

CareFlight’s Rapid Response Helicopter was tasked by NSW Ambulance shortly before 3.50pm and landed 10 minutes later in a reserve by the scene of the incident. NSW Ambulance paramedics were providing initial treatment for the motorcyclist and had transferred him into a road ambulance.

CareFlight’s specialist doctor and NSW Ambulance critical care paramedic assessed the man’s concussion and chest pains with a portable ultrasound in the ambulance.

CareFlight’s clinical team continued providing care as the man was taken by road in a stable condition with NSW Ambulance to Westmead Hospital.
