A 23-year-old man was transported to hospital after he was thrown from his vehicle in a single-car accident at Salamander Bay overnight.
NSW Ambulance was called to the scene at Salamander Way near Port Stephens Drive just before 10pm Sunday, after reports a car carrying four people had rolled.
An Ambulance spokesperson said the 23-year-old man had been ejected from the vehicle during the crash before the car landed on his body.
Bystanders managed to lift the car off the man before he was transported by road to hospital in a stable condition, suffering pelvic and possible internal injuries.
An en route Westpac Rescue Helicopter was diverted to Salamander Bay Road before a medical team escorted the patient to hospital.
The remaining three occupants did not require transport to hospital.
