A woman is in a serious condition after being trapped under a car at Orange hospital.
The woman was allegedly struck by a car near the back entrance to the hospital on Tuesday just after 12 noon following reports she had been struck by a car on the pedestrian footpath.
A NSW police spokesperson said the 51-year-old was trapped under the Ford Territory "for a short time" before being released by NSW Fire and Rescue.
An Ambulance NSW spokesperson said the woman was treated at the scene for serious injuries to her leg and was "taken into care" at the hospital.
The 60-year-old male driver is also in hospital for minor injuries.
Police are investigating the incident.
In an unrelated incident, a trackwork rider was taken to hospital on Tuesday morning after suffering a fall.
A statement released on Racing NSW's website said trackwork rider Pat Camilleri fell during jump outs at Towac Park on Tuesday morning.
Racing NSW doctor David Duckworth reported Mr Camilleri was knocked unconscious for about 30 seconds after hitting his head but is "now conscious and is a little sore."
Scans so far have been clear, however, Mr Camilleri will stay in hospital overnight awaiting MRI results.
