Man charged with mowing woman down outside Sydney home

A MAN has been charged with deliberately mowing a woman down in a fit of rage outside her home in Sydney’s south-west, leaving her with horrific injuries including compound fractures to both legs and a shattered pelvis.

The shocking scenes played out on Kinkuna Street in Busby around 11pm last night. Police said the 50-year-old woman was standing outside her home when she was struck by a Toyota Landcruiser that had driven onto the nature strip.

The woman was pinned between the 4WD and a Subaru Forrester. She sustained severe compound fractures to both legs, a fractured pelvis and lacerations to her head.

Police said the Landcruiser was being driven by a 46-year-old man known to the woman and alleged the incident was the result of an ongoing dispute between the pair.

The man then allegedly reversed the 4WD and drove to nearby Bolinda Street where the police say the Landcruiser mounted a gutter and ploughed through a fence before slamming into a stationary vehicle.

Paramedics worked for up to an hour to stabilise the 50-year-old woman at the scene in Kinkuna Street before she could be taken to hospital.

She was eventually transported to Liverpool Hospital in a serious but stable condition. Police said she would require surgery to treat her injuries.

The 46-year-old man was arrested in Bolinda Street a short time later and taken to Green Valley Police Station where he was charged with grievous bodily harm with intent and driving while disqualified.

He was refused bail to appear in Parramatta Bail Court today.
