Teen fighting for life after colliding with ute in Nowra


Police are appealing for dash-cam vision after a young cyclist was critically injured in a crash with a ute in Nowra last weekend.

Emergency services were called to the intersection of Bridge Road and the Princes Highway in Nowra after a white Isuzu D-Max utility, travelling south on the Princes Highway and a BMX rider collided about 3.10pm on Sunday.

The rider, a 15-year-old boy, suffered serious head and chest injuries and was airlifted to the Children’s Hospital at Westmead where he remains in a critical condition.

Investigators are keen to speak with anyone who was in the area, specifically motorists travelling north and south on the highway near Bridge Road, who may have dash-cam footage of the crash.
