Saturday, March 23 2019

A 17-year-old male is in a serious but stable condition after he was injured in a multi-vehicle accident in North Richmond this evening.

CareFlight’s rapid response helicopter was tasked just before 6pm to Richmond Bells Line of Road, east of North Richmond Bridge.

Police were required to stop a cricket game at Panthers North Richmond to allow the helicopter to land, before conveying CareFlight’s medical team to the scene.

SES crews worked carefully to free the young man, who remained trapped in the one of the vehicles for about 30 minutes.

CareFlight’s specialist doctor and critical care paramedic assessed and provided treatment to the patient who suffered injuries to his lower body.

Observation was continued by the CareFlight medical team as the patient was transported via road ambulance to Westmead in a serious but stable condition.

CareFlight’s medical team also assessed two other patients who were transported to hospital via road under the observation of ambulance crews.

CareFlight’s medical team praised the effort of all emergency services involved.
