A young man was killed in a horror crash on Sydney’s Northern Beaches just days before Christmas.
Emergency services rushed to South Creek Road near Cromer after reports that a Holden station wagon collided with a parked boat at about 8:20pm Friday.
The passenger in the front seat, believed to be a 29-year-old man, died at the scene.
He has yet to be formally identified.
The 56-year-old driver of the car was not injured and was taken to Northern Beaches Hospital for mandatory testing.
He was released pending further investigation.
Northern Beach Police Area Command officers set up a crime scene, where Specialized Forensic Police began investigating the circumstances of the crash.
Anyone with information, dashcam or CCTV footage is urged to contact Northern Beaches Police or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
The fatal accident is the fifth accident on NSW roads in a matter of days, with police warning against driving over the Christmas period.
It comes after a six-year-old boy was killed in a single-vehicle car crash in the state’s Murray River region on Thursday.
The tragedy took place on Moulamein Road, Moulamein – about 110 km northwest of Deniliquin.
Another child, a four-year-old boy, who was also traveling in the car, was treated by both NSW and Victoria paramedics before being flown to the Royal Children’s Hospital in Melbourne.
The driver, a 31-year-old man, was taken to hospital for a mandatory check-up.
