Two men have died after an allegedly stolen car hit a pole in Sydney’s west early on Sunday morning.
Emergency services were called to a roundabout in Abbotsbury, about 40 kilometres from Sydney’s CBD, at 4:20am.
They found a Holden Commodore SS had struck a pole near Cowpasture Road and The Horsley Drive.
“Police have been told the vehicle was travelling north on Cowpasture Road, when it left the roadway before the roundabout and hit a pole,” NSW Police said in a statement.
Two men were dead at the scene.
A third occupant of the car, a 17-year-old boy, was taken to hospital where he remains under police guard with “non-life-threatening injuries”.
Police will allege the car was stolen from a home at Edmondson Park before the crash.
Following inquiries, a 37-year-old man from Edmondson Park was arrested in relation to the incident today.
“He is currently assisting police with their inquiries at Fairfield Police Station,” the spokesperson said.
A crime scene has been established and investigations are continuing.
