Woy Woy boy killed in M1 Crash

UPDATE 18:00: It's understood the boy was autistic and the woman was his carer.

UPDATE 8:15AM: A Woy Woy boy has died after being hit by a truck on the M1.

The 8 year old and a 28 year old woman were both killed instantly when the southbound truck collided with them at Cameron Park.

A major investigationĀ into what they were doing on the freeway at the time is now underway.

PoliceĀ believe the duo had pulled over on the road and gotten out of their car when they were hit, but it's unclear why.

The double fatal was one of two on NSW roads over the weekend, and one of eight fatalities overall. It takes the states road toll for 2017 to 330.

It was one of two double fatals and eight fatalities in a horror weekend on NSW roads.

Meantime, a 40 year old man is currently nursing serious injuries in Sydney's Westmead hospital, after slamming into a power pole in his car at Somersby yesterday afternoon (image above).

Wet conditions and a bend in Wiseman's ferry road appear to have contributed to the accident, which saw the power pole snap after being hit by the drivers side of the car just before 1pm.

Fire and Rescue and paramedics worked to release the trapped man, before Careflight airlifted him to Hospital in a stable condition.

While a third accident saw a car roll onto its side on Tumbi Road - no word on the occupants or any injuries yet.
