Six young men were lucky to escape more serious injuries in a horror day at the Eastern Creek Racing Facility today.
NSW Ambulance spokesman Phil Templeman was on the scene and said NSW Ambulance rushed to the raceway after they received multiple triple zero calls at 3pm.
‘Paramedics arrived to find a total of six persons who had been injured in a collision,’ he told 9 News.
‘All patients are stable, they received minor injuries consistent with seat belts – minor abrasions and lacerations to the face.’
Mr Templeman said precautions were taken in case any internal injuries had been suffered.
‘A number of those patients had some spinal immobilisation put into place,’ he said
‘They had some collars put around their necks and we immobilise them and transported them to hospital.
‘At this stage all persons are listed as stable and have been talken to various hospitals across the Sydney metro.’
Six men, one as young as 14, were all injured in a crash at the Eastern Creek Raceway, all were treated at the scene for minor injuries before being taken to hospital
Mr Templeman said at this stage they believed the accident occurred at a race meeting which involved predominantly young males.
‘We do have one 14 year old and the rest were all in their late teens to early 20s,’ he said.
Amateur racers have been cautioned to take care while using the raceway.
