Officers from Northern Beaches Police Area Command arrived to find six boys injured when the Toyota Hilux left Cabbage Tree Road and hit a tree about 12.20am (Saturday 7 October 2023).

A short time ago, police were told a 16-year-old boy – who was travelling in the front-passenger seat – had died.

A 17-year-old red P-plate driver was airlifted to Royal Prince Alfred Hospital, where he is in a critical but stable condition.

Four boys travelling in the back seat – one aged 16 and three aged 17 – remain in Royal North Shore Hospital.

A report will be prepared for the information of the Coroner.

Inquiries are now being conducted by officers attached to Crash Investigation Unit (CIU).

They are appealing for any witnesses, anyone who may have been travelling along the Cabbage Tree Road or the surrounding streets at the time, or who may have dashcam vision, to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
