"Multiple patients can create a challenging environment for paramedics," Acting Inspector Caine Sanders from NSW Ambulance said.
"Our crews did an amazing job assessing and treating everyone on scene.
"It was very lucky that no one sustained more serious injuries.
"This had the potential to be a terrible incident, we really need to take care behind the wheel of any motor vehicle."
