A young girl has died after a single-vehicle crash at New Lambton Heights this afternoon.
Emergency services were called to Lookout Road near McCaffrey Drive just before 1pm, after a Holden statesman lost control and collided with a power pole.
A child was treated at the scene before being rushed to the John Hunter Children’s Hospital, where she died a short time later.
Paramedics also had to free a woman from the vehicle; she’s been taken to hospital and is reportedly in a serious but stable condition.
While the male drive has been taken to the Mater Hospital for mandatory testing.
An investigation into the crash is underway.
