A 39-year-old male has been taken to hospital after his vehicle collided with another on Sunnyholt Road, Blacktown.

The man sustained shoulder injuries and was trapped in his car.

CareFlight’s Rapid Response Helicopter was tasked by NSW Ambulance shortly before 5:40pm and landed ten minutes later in Doctor Jim Reserve.

CareFlight’s specialist doctor and NSW Ambulance critical care paramedic made their way to the scene of the incident where NSW Ambulance paramedics were providing initial treatment and Fire and Rescue NSW personnel were extricating the man.

CareFlight’s clinical team performed a clinical assessment on the man, including an ultrasound at the scene while also taking spinal precautions.

The clinical team continued providing care as the man was taken by road with NSW Ambulance to Westmead Hospital in a stable condition.
