Two dead, three critical in road crashes
TWO people are dead and three are fighting for their lives following separate crashes on New South Wales roads.
A woman in her 20s died during a single-car crash near Dorrigo, in the state’s north, just before 2pm yesterday (Saturday).
The driver, a woman in her late 40s, and another woman in her late 20s, were taken to hospital with serious injuries.
Two girls and a boy, all aged under 10, were taken to hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
Police say the vehicle was heading east along the Waterfall Way, when it left the road and rolled down an embankment.
In another crash, a 46-year-old male passenger died and three others from the same vehicle, including the driver, were critically injured when a Mitsubishi Lancer and a Holden Astra collided in Sydney’s southwest.
The crash happened on Wilton Rd, Wilton, about 6:20pm yesterday.
The male passenger from the Lancer died at the scene and the other three men from the vehicle were airlifted to Liverpool Hospital.
One of those men, one aged 21, remains in hospital with a range of serious injuries.
There were four men in the Holden Astra, aged 25, 27, 31 and 34.
The 34-year-old man remains in Liverpool Hospital with serious injuries.
Police from the Metropolitan Crash Investigation Unit are looking into the crash and expect to interview both drivers at a later stage.
