A man, aged in his 20s, has sustained multiple major fractures to his body after the motorcycle he was riding collided with a vehicle at the intersection of Hemmings Street and The Crescent, Penrith.

The Mounties Care CareFlight Helicopter was tasked by NSW Ambulance shortly before 4:30pm and landed 20 minutes later in Parker Street Reserve. NSW Police escorted CareFlight’s medical team to the scene of the incident where NSW Ambulance paramedics were providing initial treatment for the motorcyclist.

CareFlight’s specialist doctor and NSW Ambulance critical care paramedic conducted a clinical assessment on the man, including an ultrasound, and performed a roadside blood and plasma transfusion.

CareFlight’s medical team provided ongoing treatment for the man as he was transported in a serious condition by road with NSW Ambulance to Westmead Hospital.
