Man cut out of car flown to RPH
A man in his 20s was cut out of his car and airlifted to Royal Perth Hospital amid the storm on Wednesday afternoon after hitting a tree on Kaloorup Road in Vasse.
As severe wind and rain lashed the roads, police, ambulance, fire and rescue and SES crews were called about 3pm to rescue the trapped victim, closing the road south of Rendezvous Road.
The RAC rescue helicopter was called in to pick up the man after he was successfully extracted.
St John Ambulance confirmed the man had multiple injuries but was alive when he was airlifted.
Major crash investigation crews attended the scene as the Times went to print yesterday morning.
Busselton SES manager Wayne Credaro said the local unit had received three other call-outs during this week’s weather front.
