Queensland woman killed in NSW crash

A 21-YEAR-OLD Queensland woman has been killed in a horror two-car crash in Sydney’s west.

The woman was driving a Suzuki Baleno with two female passengers when she collided with a Nissan Micra.

Police said the Suzuki was travelling east before it collided with the Nissan in the westbound lane.


It happened on Richmond Road at Berkshire Park just after 1am.

Witnesses performed CPR on the 21-year-old Queensland woman but she could not be saved.

Police confirmed the young woman died at the scene despite desperate attempts to keep her alive.

A 20-year-old woman sitting in the front passenger seat had to be cut out of the wreck by firefighters.

She, along with a second 23-year-old female passenger and the driver and passenger from the Nissan, two men aged 61 and 31, were taken to Westmead Hospital for treatment.

They were all able to free themselves from their vehicles and were transported to hospital in stable conditions.

Police are investigating the circumstances surrounding the crash and will prepare a report for the Coroner.

While police were at the scene, they were forced to stop a Toyota after its driver, a 22-year-old woman, allegedly tried driving straight through the crime scene.

The young woman was then arrested after she allegedly failed a roadside breath test and it was revealed her licence was suspended.

She was taken to Windsor Police Station where she returned an alleged reading of 0.070.

The Carnes Hill woman was charged with low-range PCA, and driving on a suspended licence.
