Three people were involved in a vehicle accident on a property at Upper Burringbar. Photo supplied

Three people were involved in a vehicle accident on a property at Upper Burringbar southeast of Murwillumbah this afternoon (Friday, 16 July, 2021).

‘The Westpac Rescue Helicopter was tasked by New South Wales Ambulance at 4.15pm this afternoon to a report of a all-terrain vehicle rollover… with three people possibly injured,’ said a spokesperson for Westpac Rescue Helicopter.

Local NSW Ambulance Paramedics and the Helicopter Critical Care Medical Team treated and stabilised one of the occupants, a 20yo male suffering chest and shoulder injuries, before he was airlifted to Gold Coast University Hospital in a serious, but stable, condition for further treatment.

The two other occupants were treated for various non-life threatening injuries.
