Distraught parents have attended the scene of a horrific car crash in Sydney, in which a 17-year-old girl and her 21-year-old female driver somehow cheated death.
The driver and her teenage passenger narrowly escaped with their lives after their car split in two around a telegraph pole and caught fire about 8.20pm on Friday.
Rescue workers pulled the girls from the Mitsubishi Lancer which was found torn entirely in half with its windscreen shattered and bonnet strewn across the corner of the Cumberland Highway and Percival Road in Smithfield, in the city’s west.
