Police say that at about 1.30am today (Tuesday, 27 October), emergency services were called to the M1 Motorway near Kennedys Lane at Tyagarah, after reports a Hyundai i30 had collided with several objects and left the roadway.

A NSW Police spokesperson said the driver – an 18-year-old man – was located a short distance from the vehicle with critical injuries.

At around 1.40am the Westpac Life Saver Rescue Helicopter was tasked to the MVA.

The patient was treated by NSWA paramedics and the Helicopter Critical Care Medical Team before being placed in a medically induced coma and flown to Gold Coast University Hospital where he remains in a critical condition.

The M1 northbound was reduced to one lane for a short time, before re-opening to traffic about 5am.

Inquiries into the circumstances surrounding the crash have commenced, anyone with information which may help police is urged to come forward.
