Saturday 29 April, Sydney 1.10pm

A 31-year-old male has been airlifted to hospital with suspected spinal injuries after an accident in the Hawkesbury region this morning.

The man was riding with a group of motorcyclists when he was involved in a collision with a ute.

CareFlight’s rapid response rescue helicopter was tasked to Wisemans Ferry shortly before 10am.

The accident took place on a windy section of the Old Northern Road, south of the township.

A NSW Ambulance crew, at the scene providing initial treatment to the man, coordinated a local vehicle to immediately convey CareFlight’s critical care team to the patient from the nearby landing site.

CareFlight’s specialist doctor and critical care paramedic provided treatment for facial injuries and suspected spinal injuries.

The man was airlifted to Royal North Shore Hospital in a serious but stable condition.
