Kids hit by car in shocking crash
Three boys have been rushed to hospital and a driver arrested after a car crash in Sydney’s north shore.
Emergency services were called to the scene at the Pacific Highway near Falcon Street in Crows Nest at about 3:30pm.
Police were told three boys aged between 12 and 14 were knocked to the ground by the car.
All three boys sustained leg and head injuries.
They were treated at the scene by NSW Ambulance paramedics before being taken to The Children’s Hospital at Westmead in a stable condition.
Investigating officers went onto arrest a man at Lane Cove at about 4pm following inquiries.
“He was taken to Chatswood Police Station and is assisting police with inquiries,” a NSW Police spokesperson said.
Traffic around the area remains slow due to the incident, with motorists warned to expect lengthy delays.
Two of the three southbound lanes are closed.
Another schoolboy who witnessed the incident said there was “a bit of a bang” followed by cars beeping.
A witness told 9 News the incident involved “absolutely crazy” scenes as ambulances and police cars lined the street in response.
“There were police directing traffic everywhere, ambulances everywhere and police accompanying the ambulances to the hospital,” he said.
