“All suffered serious injuries. This included two with head injuries,” a NSW Ambulance Service spokeswoman said.
Reportedly, four cars collided on Church Street in Ryde, approximately 15-km north of the city centre. The accident which critically injured three people is believed to have taken place around 4.50 pm on Monday. The driver of one vehicle, a 35-year-old local man, was rushed to Westmead Hospital by CareFlight in an ambulance.
Although the scene of the accident has been cleared, the passing by vehicles stop for a while to take a look which is causing traffic jam. Traffic is diverted from the site of the accident, near Devlin Street, to Epping Road. The traffic is likely to be disrupted for a prolonged time since the Crash Investigation Unit is investigating the scene.
