A driver who reversed his car over a ledge in the Aldi car park on Monday had to be freed from the car by emergency services before being taken to Bathurst Base Hospital for treatment.
The driver, aged in his 80s, remained trapped in his car until emergency services were able to stabilise the car which became suspended over the ledge after he reversed over it.
Paramedics, police, NSW Fire and Rescue and the SES all rushed to the scene, after receiving Triple-0 calls from shocked by-standers.
A spokesperson for NSW Ambulance said the first call came through at 12.16pm.
As the car was unstable, SES crews used Acrow Props to stabilise the vehicle to safely extricate the driver, who was inside.
The driver was treated at the scene by paramedics before being conveyed to Bathurst Base Hospital by NSW Ambulance, for further medical assessment.
