Car ploughs into house, hits teen

The 13-year-old boy was trapped under the vehicle for almost an hour before being freed by emergency services, while the driver, a man in his fifties or sixties, was stuck inside.

Police from Kuring-gai Local Area Command were told that about 9.45am the Honda CRV collided with a car at a service station on Parklands Road, before crashing into a house on Old Pacific Highway.

The CRV then hit the 13-year-old boy on Northumberland Avenue.

A NSW Ambualnce spokesman told ninemsn the teen was stable while the firemen worked to free him from under the car.

“The car was on top of the child — you’ve got to be careful how you extricate the patient so as not to cause further injuries.”

He said the teenager was taken to Westmead Hospital suffering injuries to his chest, pelvic and lower limbs and the driver has been taken to Royal North Shore Hospital with head injuries.

Police are trying to determine the cause of the crash and are appealing for any witnesses to come forward.

Northumberland Avenue has been closed and lanes have also been shut down on the Old Pacific Highway.
