A car has ploughed into a group of pedestrians killing a woman and injuring two others as they walked along a footpath in Wollongong on Saturday night.
Emergency services were called to Flinders Street about 10.30pm where they found a 19-year-old woman suffering multiple critical injuries, with two others also wounded.
They were treated at the scene before being taken to Wollongong Hospital, where the woman died.
An 18-year-old woman remains in hospital with a fractured pelvis and a 21-year-old man with a fractured leg and ribs. A fourth person escaped injury.
Wollongong Police District officers understand a sedan was driving south along Flinders Street when the driver allegedly lost control, ran off the road and struck the four people who were walking along the footpath.
The driver – a 21-year-old man – was arrested at the scene and taken for drug and alcohol testing.
Two passengers in the vehicle at the time were also assisting police with inquiries.
Anyone with information about the incident should phone Crime Stoppers.
