A teenage driver was airlifted to Sydney’s Royal North Shore Hospital in a critical condition after crashing his car in Woy Woy.
CareFlight’s rapid response rescue helicopter landed at Woy Woy Public School, adjacent to the crash scene, on the corner of Rawson Rd and Edward St, Woy Woy on March 8.
NSW Police and NSW Fire and Rescue worked for about half an hour to free the 17-year-old male from his vehicle, which rolled after crashing into a tree.
The CareFlight medical team sedated and intubated the teenager.
He was then transferred to the helicopter to be flown to Royal North Shore with serious head and suspected spinal injuries.
