A multi-vehicle crash that occurred this afternoon in the Blue Mountains of New South Wales was described as “confronting and chaotic,” and it resulted in ten people sustaining major injuries. After the crash that took place at Wentworth Falls shortly after one o’clock in the afternoon, a wide variety of injured people were brought in to be treated by the paramedics.
Inspector Ronald Gavin of the New South Wales Ambulance Service commented that all of the crews had done an amazing job under the adverse conditions. As soon as the paramedics arrived on the site, they began treating patients for a variety of ailments and grouping people into different categories as they did so.
In addition, we found four patients imprisoned when we initially arrived; three of them were rescued in a respectable length of time, but one man remained held for a substantial amount of time. A man in his 30s, a woman in her 60s, and a kid were all admitted to Westmead Hospital, but Westmead Children’s Hospital only admitted a child.
Medical attention was sought out at Nepean Hospital by a man in his 30s, a woman in her 30s, and a man in his 40s. The emergency room at the Liverpool Hospital received a second patient, this time an adult male in his sixties. There were three more victims who were examined at the scene, but it was concluded that they did not require hospitalization due to their condition. Motorists were advised to factor more travel time into their itineraries whenever they passed through the region.
