Lucky Escape For Elderly Man After Car Rolls

An elderly man was lucky to escape relatively unscathed after his car rolled near Scone last night.

Paramedics treated the 85 year old for minor injuries following the single vehicle accident at Stewarts Brook around 7pm.

Given the somewhat isolated location of the accident, the call was made to airlift him via Westpac Rescue Helicopter to the John Hunter Hospital.

He was in a stable condition.
