Emergency services combined to treat a girl who was struck by a 4WD as she crossed a busy road at Avoca Beach on Friday, July 11.
Police met the CareFlight helicopter at a nearby park to take the doctor and duty paramedic to join ambulance paramedics treating the girl on Avoca Dr near the intersection of Round Dr.
The CareFlight doctor said the 12-year-old girl, from Avoca, suffered leg and head injuries when she was hit shortly after 3 pm. After stabilisation, the girl was flown by CareFlight, under continued treatment by the medical team, to the Children’s Hospital at Westmead where she remained in a stable condition on arrival.
