A 15-year-old girl has been rushed to hospital with serious injuries after a quadbike accident north-west of Sydney.

Two ambulance teams and CareFlight treated the teen at the Upper Colo Reserve campsite, north of Windsor, around 12.40pm today after she became pinned underneath a 4WD buggy when it upturned.

After she was freed, CareFlight's specialist doctor and NSW Ambulance critical care paramedics performed a clinical assessment on the patient, including an ultrasound and administered pain relief.
