Young girl hit by car at Wyoming

A 12-year-old girl was flown in a serious but stable condition to Westmead Children’s Hospital after being hit by car at Wyoming on Saturday, July 29.

Three NSW Ambulance road crews, an Ambulance Inspector and the Westpac Ambulance Rescue helicopter with a critical care doctor and paramedic were at the scene to treat the girl.

She was treated for head injuries and stabilised for transport to hospital by Westpac Rescue Helicopter.

“This young patient has suffered a significant trauma from the impact of the collision,” said Ambulance Inspector Mark Whittaker.

“Paramedics stabilised her for airlift using spinal and pelvic precautions.

“This incident is a harsh reminder of the need for constant vigilance by pedestrians and drivers around busy roads,” Whittaker said.

The young girl was trying to cross the Pacific Highway outside the caravan park at about 5.30pm.

A 21-year-old man driving the vehicle was taken to Gosford Hospital for mandatory testing and was not injured.

A crime scene was established and the road closed for a number of hours.

No charges have been laid as Police continue to investigate the incident.

Anyone with information or dashcam footage is asked to contact Gosford Police Station.
