A teenage girl was injured in a car rollover after the driver suffered a medical episode in Ravenswood on Wednesday.

The two were injured after the driver had a major heart attack and crashed which resulted in the rollover.

Police say the Toyota Corolla hit a light pole and rolled on Pinjarra Road near Nancarrow Way about 7pm.

A 13-year-old girl had to be airlifted by the RAC Rescue helicopter to Royal Perth Hospital after she suffered leg injuries.

Skeer Media understands she was released from the hospital’s burns unit yesterday.

The driver, a man, in his 40s, suffered a heart attack behind the wheel before the car rolled.

He was taken to Peel Health Campus with serious injuries and then transferred to Royal Perth Hospital.

The fly in fly out worker remained in an induced coma for three days and woke today.

The crash forced emergency services to close Pinjarra Road for most of Wednesday night as the Major Crash Unit document the scene and gathered evidence.
