The daughter of famed neurosurgeon Dr Charlie Teo is facing serious charges after crashing head on with the founder of Australia's Comanchero motorcycle gang on NSW's Central Coast.
Nicola Teo, 24, was yesterday driving a Toyota Landcruiser when the car allegedly crossed to the wrong side of the road and struck former bikie Jock Ross on his Harley Davidson.
"Police will allege she (Ms Teo) was travelling on the wrong side of the road for some distance which resulted in the crash occurring," NSW Police detective inspector Katie Orr told reporters.
Mr Ross suffered critical injuries in the head-on collision on Settlers Road at Lower Macdonald about 3.30pm.
The 76-year-old was airlifted to Westmead Hospital with head, leg, arm and internal injuries.
"I ran down the road and there was a motorcycle trapped under the front of the car… the rider, on the other side of it," witness Keith Acton told 9News.
Ms Teo has undergone mandatory drug and alcohol tests.
She has been charged with dangerous driving occasioning grievous bodily harm, negligent driving occasioning grievous bodily harm, not keep left of the dividing line and not giving particulars to police.
Authorities believe Ms Teo had just left a nearby property. Police will investigate whether she was on the phone.
She was granted conditional bail and will face Windsor Local Court on October 17.
Inspector Andrew McAlpine from NSW Ambulance said Ross' condition was grave enough to warrant sending a medical helicopter to administer aid.
"The patient had suffered significant and serious injuries. He sustained lower leg, pelvic and some head injuries," Insp. McAlpine said.
"He wasn't in a great way. He was treated at the scene by CareFlight doctors and intensive care paramedics and due to the seriousness of his condition he was placed into an induced coma and evacuated via helicopter to Westmead Hospital."
Scottish-born, William George "Jock" Ross was president of the notorious Comanchero club in Sydney in the 1970s and '80s.
He was found to have instigated the infamous Milperra Massacre on Father's Day in 1984, in which seven people were killed.
Ross was shot, but survived.
He spent more than five years behind bars for his role in the deadly shootout between rival gangs.
Ross eventually left the gang, moved north of Sydney and is now a Rural Fire Service captain and grandfather of 12.
His wife of almost 50 years, Vanessa Ross, is by his bedside at Westmead Hospital.
His condition is listed as serious and he is set to undergo further surgery today.
