Acting Inspector Caine Sanders from NSW Ambulance said it was a challenge for paramedics to assess all the injured passengers at once.
‘Our crews did an amazing job assessing and treating everyone on scene,’ he told 9News.
‘It was very lucky that no one sustained more serious injuries.
‘This had the potential to be a terrible incident, we really need to take care behind the wheel of any motor vehicle.’
The patients were seen being stretchered into seven ambulances, while dozens of emergency services crew waited at the scene.
More to come.
