Police found the girl, still strapped into her booster seat, on the F3 at Waroonga after a car and truck collided about 10am on Tuesday, Careflight spokesman Ian Badham said.

All northbound lanes of the freeway were blocked to traffic to allow a CareFlight helicopter to land at Hornsby.

Paramedics were called to initial reports of a girl who was not breathing with head injuries.

The CareFlight doctor said he was amazed to find the six-year-old girl, of Engadine, suffering only bruising and cuts to her head.

“Police told the doctor they reached the crash scene to find the girl, still strapped in her booster seat, after she was thrown over 10 metres from the car,” Mr Badham said.

The girl was taken in a stable condition by a road ambulance to the Children’s Hospital at Westmead for observation.
