Despite the front right wheel being ripped off, the vehicle continued and was involved in a head-on collision with a Ford Fiesta.
Both of these vehicles then hit a parked utility and a BMW.

The driver of the Mercedes was the only person injured; he was taken to St Vincent’s Hospital where he is reported to be in a serious condition with suspected chest and abdominal injuries.
All lanes of McLachlan Avenue and two southbound lanes of Bayswater Road were closed for two hours while the scene was examined and the wreckage removed.
