A 16-year-old boy has been taken to hospital in a stable condition after he was involved in a collision with a car in Glenmore Park this afternoon.
The boy’s push scooter impacted the car’s front panels and windscreen heavily when it collided with the moving vehicle upon entering a street.
CareFlight’s rapid response rescue helicopter was tasked to the scene shortly before 5pm, landing in a park near the accident scene.
Police conveyed CareFlight’s medical crew about 600 metres to the patient on Coco Drive, where he was receiving initial treatment from NSW Ambulance crews.
CareFlight’s specialist doctor and critical care paramedic treated the boy for extensive facial injuries and soft tissue damage.
The doctor decided to carry on treatment in a road ambulance while the boy was transported to Westmead Children’s Hospital in a stable condition.
