About 2:15pm, Tuesday 26 December, the Mounties Care CareFlight Helicopter was tasked by NSW Ambulance to the scene of a two-car accident in Schofields, northwest Sydney.

Three people were extricated from the cars after a multi-agency operation including NSW Ambulance, NSW Police and Fire & Rescue NSW. CareFlight’s specialist doctor and NSW Ambulance paramedics worked together at the scene to assess and treat the patients.

CareFlight and NSW Ambulance paramedics treated a male in his 20s for head and torso injuries.

The man was then taken in a road ambulance with a CareFlight specialist doctor to Westmead Hospital in a stable condition. The other two patients were also transported by road ambulance to Westmead Hospital in stable conditions.
