Child dies in hospital after being hit by car in NSW

A 10-year-old boy has lost his fight for life after being hit by a car south of Sydney earlier this week.

Emergency crews were called Waples Road in Unanderra on Wednesday morning, following reports a child had been struck by a vehicle.

The youngster was treated at the scene for critical head injuries before being airlifted to the Sydney Children’s Hospital at Randwick.


The driver of a Nissan Maxima, a 17-year-old boy, was taken to Wollongong Hospital for mandatory testing and later released.

Police confirmed in a statement overnight that the boy sadly passed away in hospital just before 11.00am on Saturday.

A report will be prepared for the Coroner.
