A ride-share driver remains in hospital after being knocked unconscious allegedly during a confrontation with a passenger in Sydney’s north-west this morning.
Officers from The Hills Police Area Command were called to Nullabor Street at North Kellyville, near Sandbanks Avenue, responding to reports of a fight involving two men shortly after 3.10am (Sunday 18 April 2021).
