Fatal Crash at New Lambton Heights

A young girl has died after a single-vehicle crash at New Lambton Heights this afternoon.

Emergency services were called to Lookout Road near McCaffrey Drive just before 1pm, after a Holden statesman lost control and collided with a power pole.

A child was treated at the scene before being rushed to the John Hunter Children’s Hospital, where she died a short time later.

Paramedics also had to free a woman from the vehicle; she’s been taken to hospital and is reportedly in a serious but stable condition.

While the male drive has been taken to the Mater Hospital for mandatory testing.
