The community has rallied behind a Sydney police officer who's had to have part of his leg amputated, after a car ploughed into a RBT site in Leumeah in Sydney's south-west on Friday night.

A 22-year-old man has now been charged over the incident, for alleged dangerous driving while using his mobile phone.

Another senior constable broke his leg badly when the pair were struck at around 8.20pm as they were setting up the breath test site on Campbelltown Road.

A GoFundMe page set up by a family friend of Jonathon Wright, aiming to ease some of the financial burden.

So far over $75,000 has been raised and the total continues to climb.

"He was just a bloke going to work, supporting his family and protecting his community," the friend wrote on GoFundMe.

"They've been inundated with messages of love and support, all of which I know are so greatly appreciated. There have also been dozens of requests for how people can help. We all feel helpless and just want to support this beautiful family".
