A 55 year old man has been airlifted to John Hunter hospital, after a motorbike accident on an isolated stretch of road at the north-western end of the Central Coast.
The Westpac Rescue Chopper was tasked to Walkers Ridge Road in Bucketty around 12:30 on Sunday afternoon, and a medical crew was winched into the area.
They found the rider conscious and breathing with back, chest and rib injuries.
"Following winch inserting the medical crew the helicopter was able to land close by the accident scene where the patient was transported to hospital," a spokesperson said.
"The patient is in a stable condition."
