Child airlifted to hospital after being hit by car at NSW school

A young child has been airlifted to hospital after being hit by a reversing car.

Emergency services were called to a school in Bathurst around 5.00pm Thursday following reports of a crash.

Police say that initial investigations suggest an 18-month-old boy was struck by a Holden Commodore wagon that was reversing.


The child was treated at the scene before being airlifted to the Children’s Hospital at Westmead with serious injuries.

The driver of the Commodore, a 38-year-old woman, was taken to Bathurst Hospital for mandatory blood and urine tests.

A crime scene has been established and investigations are continuing.
