Fire and Rescue NSW worked diligently to free the occupants, a 35-year-old driver and a 19-year-old passenger, who were critically injured.

Despite medical efforts, the young passenger succumbed to his injuries on Tuesday, November 14, 2023, further deepening the tragedy. Subsequent investigations by Lake Macquarie Police District, supported by the Crash Investigation Unit, scrutinized the circumstances surrounding the crash.
