A man has crawled out of his overturned ute at Warriewood.

Just before 6.30pm this evening (Saturday, 09 March), emergency services responded to a report of a Toyota Hilux rolled over at Macpherson Street, Warriewood, near Forest Road.

Nearby residents came out of their homes after hearing a loud crash and found a white 1995 Toyota Hilux utility on its roof. One resident said the male driver still had his foot on the accelerator immediately after the incident, and another said that they could see smoke coming from the overturned vehicle.

The badly shaken man was assisted from the overturned vehicle, which had collided with a parked trailer, which in turn was pushed into a parked LDV utility, damaging the rear tray of the late model vehicle that is currently for sale (image below).

Fire and Rescue NSW Mona Vale Station, NSW Police and two NSW Ambulance crews, including NSW Ambulance Inspector Christian Holmes, responded to the incident scene.

Firefighters assisted the shaken driver and sole occupant of the utility, a man in his 40s, and ensured he was not in immediate need of first aid assistance.

Paramedics assessed the man, who was disoriented after the collision but did not appear to have any physical injuries. He was taken to Royal North Shore Hospital in a stable condition for further tests and observation just after 7.00pm.

Macpherson Street was closed by NSW Police until the overturned vehicle was righted by a tow truck and removed from the scene shortly before 7.30pm.

The owner of the damaged LDV ute, who was celebrating his birthday in the city, was contacted as a courtesy by the Northern Beaches Advocate via the for sale sign on the window and given the bad news of the damage to his vehicle.
