A 17-YEAR-OLD boy has been killed and another has been seriously injured after a four-wheel-drive collided head-on with their motorbikes in the NSW Hunter Valley.
Police said the two teens were riding their bikes south along Commission Road at Jerry Plains on Sunday afternoon when the horrific accident occurred.
It’s understood a Nissan Patrol travelling along the same road in the opposite direction collided head-on with the two bikes as they rounded a bend around 2.30pm.
