Ed Ordynski airlifted to hospital

I have just heard that Ed Ordynski was involved in a MAJOR accident in this weekends Central Coast rally classic up hear near home, he was airlifted to hospital with chest/shoulder injuries including several broken ribs. His Co driver was also taken to hospital(by road - so I guess not as bad shape)
Ordynski has won the 3 previous years events held here. From what I'm led to believe he clipped a bank & rolled car several times(there will undoubtably be incar footage on news if this is the case)
I'll post more on it as I find more out.....

Re: Ed Ordynski airlifted to hospital

This is from the www.rally.com.au web site:

"Someone not so lucky today was Mitsubishi stalwart Ed Ordynski who fell victim to the fast Watagan Road stage. Ordynski was on pace in the morning but clipped a bank with the rear of the car on a fast piece of the stage, which rolled the car several times down the road.

Ordynski was initially taken to hospital for observation, but was released later in the day.
"

Glad to hear he was ok.

Re: Ed Ordynski airlifted to hospital

From the official ARC website.....
Someone not so lucky today was Mitsubishi stalwart Ed Ordynski who fell victim to the fast Watagan Road stage. Ordynski was on pace in the morning but clipped a bank with the rear of the car on a fast piece of the stage, which rolled the car several times down the road.
Ed Ordynski has been taken to a local hospital for further examination but the safety crews who attended the scene have confirmed that he has suffered a couple of broken ribs. He will receive a full assessment and could potentially be kept overnight for further observation. He was released later in the day.
"We had that corner as an eight left on brow which is probably about 140-150kms an hour. He's just put the right rear in to a ditch and then the car's basically rolled from there. It hasn't touched much of the top of the car, most of the damages was been done underneath. All four wheels are pointing in different directions," Pedder explained.
Not nearly as bad as local radio first had it...

Re: Ed Ordynski airlifted to hospital

On tonights local news they had video footage of the roll over & some still shots of the aftermath.
Was a nasty roll, end for end flip, then twisted to barrel roll down road before coming to a rest on its broken feet.
News stated Ordynski is still in Gosford Hospital recovering, progressing well....
