A 70-year-old woman and young child have died following a two-car crash in the state’s Northern Tablelands.
Police say that at about 12.20pm on Saturday, emergency services were called to Thunderbolts Way, Nowendoc, following reports a 4WD towing a camper trailer and sedan had collided.
The driver of the sedan and sole occupant, a woman aged in her 70s, died at the scene.
The 4WD driver, a 41-year-old man, and his passengers, a woman, two boys, aged nine and 11, and two girls, aged two and four, were all treated at the scene by police and NSW Ambulance paramedics, before being taken to John Hunter Hospital.
The four-year-old girl was airlifted; however, she was declared deceased on arrival at hospital.
Officers from Oxley Police District and the Traffic and Highway Patrol Command established a crime scene, which will be examined by specialist police from the Crash Investigation Unit.
