‘Horrendous scene’: Woman and two children, aged 6 and 10, dead in horror Central Coast crash
A woman and two children have died in a tragic accident on the NSW Central Coast.
Five children were in the car when it was travelling down Wisemans Ferry Road, Central Mangrove, about 10pm Tuesday.
The vehicle, a Toyota Prado, approached Nurses Road before it veered off the road, rolled down an embankment and crashed into a tree.
The 32-year-old female driver and two children, a six-year-old girl and 10-year-old boy, died at the scene.
Three other children, boys aged one, five and nine, were treated by paramedics before being flown to John Hunter Hospital where they remain in stable conditions.
Police are now investigating whether another motorist, who was travelling on Wisemans Ferry Road shortly after the crash, may have hit one of the children, who was on the road.
A 37-year-old man who was driving a Hyundai has been taken to hospital for mandatory testing.
NSW Ambulance chief superintendent Brent Armitage described the scene as “horrendous”.
“This was an absolutely horrendous scene for everyone involved,” he said.
“Our hearts go out to the family and friends of these victims. It’s a tragic loss of life.
“There is no way to put into words what paramedics and first responders were faced with when arriving on scene.”
Wisemans Ferry Road, near Nurses Road, was closed with diversions in place.
