Two Children Killed After Car Crashes Into School in Sydney

Police block the main road leading to the Banksia Public School following a vehicle crash incident inside the school premises in Sydney on November 7, 2017.

The 52-year-old female driver was taken to hospital where she is undergoing urine and blood testing.

She was reportedly dropping off a child at the time.

According a police report, the auto, which was being driven by a 52-year-old local woman, entered a Banksia Road Public School classroom filled with kids at about 10:31 a.m.

Five children were rushed to Westmead Children's Hospital with critical injuries, including the two young boys who could not be revived.

The children who died were boys aged eight.

The crash was described as a "scene of carnage" unfolding into "pandemonium" and NSW Ambulance sent 16 vehicles to the incident.

One distraught father described lifting the auto off a dying boy while another child screamed for his mother in the chaos after the crash.

"There were a number of distressed and overwhelmed children and teachers at the scene of a disgusting accident", she said. "They were crying, they were distressed, some were asking for their parents", Radnidge said, the Guardian reported.

"He was saying "I want my mum".

Student Mariam Issmail told the Australian Broadcasting Corporation that she saw a teacher faint after the crash, while others loaded children into ambulances.

As the 24 year three students inside classroom 3T tried to comprehend the horror that had just unfolded in front of them, the parent heard a desperate plea that will stay with him forever.

She said: 'We were in the classroom and when we heard a big bang we stood up, there was a black out straight away we were evacuated to Kindergarten.
