A 20-year-old man riding a dirt bike has crashed into a tree on his Sackville, Hawkesbury, property.

He sustained suspected chest injuries.

CareFlight’s Rapid Response Helicopter was tasked by NSW Ambulance shortly before 3.45pm and landed 10 minutes later in a nearby paddock. NSW Police escorted CareFlight’s clinical team to the scene of the incident where NSW Ambulance paramedics had provided initial treatment for the man.

CareFlight’s specialist doctor and NSW Ambulance critical care paramedic performed a clinical assessment on the patient and conducted an ultrasound before administering pain relief.

CareFlight’s clinical team continued providing care as the patient was airlifted in a serious but stable condition to Westmead Hospital.
