A woman is in hospital after crashing into police cars in Sydney’s west.

Just after midnight on Thursday, a Toyota Echo was travelling east on Queen Street, Auburn, when it crossed to the incorrect side of the road and hit an empty police car which was parked outside the Police Station.

Two other police cars were also damaged by the impact.


The driver of the Echo, a 47-year-old woman, was trapped in her vehicle for almost an hour before being freed.
