A teenage male has sustained head, chest and suspected spinal injuries when his broken-down vehicle rolled over him at the intersection of Bali Drive and Hambledon Road, Quakers Hill.
The Mounties Care CareFlight Helicopter was tasked shortly before 10:00am and landed 15 minutes later in a nearby oval. NSW Police escorted CareFlight’s medical team to the scene of the incident where NSW Ambulance paramedics were providing initial treatment for the patient.
CareFlight’s specialist doctor and NSW Ambulance critical care paramedic conducted a clinical assessment on the patient, which included an ultrasound and administering pain relief, while undertaking spinal precautions.
CareFlight’s medical team provided ongoing observation for the patient as he was taken by road with NSW Ambulance in a stable condition to Westmead Hospital.
