A seven-year-old girl has been hit by a car while crossing the road in Mount Druitt. She sustained injuries to her head, chest and abdomen.

The incident occurred within a short distance from the girl’s school in the afternoon.

CareFlight’s Rapid Response Helicopter was tasked by NSW Ambulance at 3.30pm and landed less than 15 minutes later in a park by the scene of the incident. CareFlight’s specialist doctor and NSW Ambulance critical care paramedic made their way to the scene of the incident where NSW Ambulance paramedics were providing initial treatment.

The aeromedical team performed a clinical assessment and conducted an ultrasound on the girl before she was transported to hospital.

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