A 25-year-old driver has been airlifted by CareFlight helicopter after her car was struck by another vehicle while reversing her car in Umina on Friday, October 23.
The woman sustained injuries and fractures to her chest, abdomen and leg.
The rapid response helicopter landed at Ettalong Oval, from where NSW Police escorted the clinical team to the scene of the incident.
NSW Ambulance paramedics had provided initial treatment before CareFlight’s doctor and critical care paramedic performed a clinical assessment on her, including an ultrasound.
The patient was airlifted to Royal North Shore Hospital in a stable condition under ongoing observation.
The helicopter went on to do two further back-to-back missions at Kurrajong Heights and Galston immediately after the Umina incident.
