A 59-year-old man has suffered head injuries and lost consciousness following a collision between his motorcycle and a vehicle on Richmond Road, Marsden Park.
CareFlight’s Rapid Response Helicopter was tasked by NSW Ambulance shortly after 3.00pm and landed 20 minutes later in a clearing by the scene of the incident where NSW Ambulance paramedics were providing initial treatment.
CareFlight’s specialist doctor and NSW Ambulance critical care paramedic performed an ultrasound on the motorcyclist to assess his condition and prepared him for transfer to hospital.
CareFlight’s clinical team continued providing care as the motorcyclist was taken by road in a stable condition with NSW Ambulance to Westmead Hospital.
