Man flown to hospital after car crash near Casino

A 22-year-old man was flown to hospital after the car he was driving hit a concrete barrier near Casino on Sunday.

About 9.40am on Sunday, a white Holden Commodore was travelling east along Ellangowan Road, about 7km from the Ryans Road intersection, when the vehicle collided with a concrete barrier and flipped onto its roof, NSW Police confirmed.

Passing motorists stopped to render assistance and called emergency services.

Police and NSW Ambulance paramedics arrived a short time later, before the driver - a 22-year-old man - was flown to Gold Coast University Hospital.

Inquiries are continuing into the circumstances surrounding the crash.
