A woman in her 20s has been hurt in an accident on High Street, Penrith this morning.

A silver Commodore was involved in the accident near the intersection of Castlereagh Street.

A helicopter has attended to assist emergency crews, who arrived on site shortly after 11.30am.

Police, Paramedics and crews from Fire & Rescue NSW all attended the incident.

The woman was taken to Westmead Hospital in a serious but stable condition.

“We arrived to a busy scene on High Street, with some bystanders providing assistance to the patient before we arrived,” NSW Ambulance Acting Inspector Mark Thomas said.

“She’d been pinned under a vehicle and sustained some serious injuries to her hip, leg and abdomen.

“Paramedics provided treatment at the scene, which included applying a pelvic splint and administering pain relief, before the patient was taken to hospital by road, accompanied by the CareFlight medical team.”

High Street was closed to traffic for more than an hour.
