What police believe was a street race between two cars has ended in a high-speed crash in Wickham.
The driver of a high-powered sports car was injured in a collision with a set of traffic lights at the intersection of Downie and Hannell Street at 7.50pm on Wednesday night.
Police said witnesses saw another car, a grey Holden Commodore, continue down Hannell Street after the Nissan crashed.
“It [the Nissan] was witnessed driving at high speed down Hannell Street in Wickham before colliding with several objects before crashing,” Chief Inspector Terry Burns of Waratah Police said.
“Witnesses believe this particular car was driving alongside another vehicle, both vehicles weaving in and out of traffic.
“The other vehicle, described as a grey-coloured Commodore, did not stop.”
The driver of the sports car was taken to John Hunter Hospital and his passenger was treated at the scene by paramedics, he said. Both men were in their twenties.
A spokesperson for Ambulance NSW said one of the men was bleeding, but the injuries they sustained in the crash were “non-emergency” and were not life-threatening.
Police are appealing to the public for information that could assist in locating the grey Holden Commodore and its driver.
