Pedestrians injured after car crash


Two pedestrians have been injured after a two-car crash caused a P-plate to mount the curb and plow into them in Darlington this afternoon.

Just after kl. At 12.30, emergency services were called to the corner of Lawson and Abercrombie streets after reports two cars were collided.

One of the cars. a gray Toyota Yaris with P-plates, ran off the road and hit a stop mark before hit the two pedestrians.

A spokeswoman from the NSW Ambulance said that a woman, who they think is 19 years old, has been taken to the Royal Prince Alfred Hospital with a serious pelvic injury.

"A man in the thirties has a foot injury and he is taken to Sydney Hospital," said the spokeswoman.

Drivers suffer a little less damage. Their age and gender are not known at this stage.

Richard Faithorn, who owns nearby Leonard Advertising, said that he heard a loud noise, which he initially thought was a construction, but heard the screams shortly afterwards.

"There was noise from something thrown into the back of the outside," he said.

"Like building work, and so came the screams – screams of pain and shock and my God, something has happened."

Lawson St remains closed while the police are investigating.

Police do not treat the incident as a deliberate act, but urges everyone to provide information.
