Macquarie National News

Emergency services are pleading with drivers to stay safe on the road after paramedics were called to nearly 30 crashes across Sydney on Tuesday morning.

Crews attended 22 incidents between 6am and 9am during peak hour on the first day back for thousands of school students.

These were the main incidents:

  • Burst water main on Victoria Road, Drummoyne
  • Truck rollover on Homebush Bay Drive approaching the M4
  • Car has driven into Parramatta River at Rhodes
  • Truck has brought a tree down on the Great Western Highway in Blaxland
  • B-Double truck rams a car down a road in Sydenham

New South Wales Ambulance Inspector Phil Templeman says parents both in and out of the car need to be more cautious.

“Young children don’t have the same ability to judge traffic and cross the road in a safe manner.”
