Woman dies after car hits tree – Central Coast

A woman has died after her car left the M1 and hit a tree on the Central Coast last night.

Emergency services were called to the M1 Motorway at Kangy Angy about 6.35pm (Sunday 25 September 2022), after a northbound Hyundai sedan left the roadway, drove onto the median strip and hit a tree.

An off-duty nurse and Tuggerah Lakes police officer provided first aid to the 22-year-old female driver – and sole occupant – until paramedics arrived and she was airlifted to Royal North Shore Hospital in a critical condition.

Officers from Tuggerah Lakes Police District have now been advised the woman died in hospital earlier today (Monday 26 September 2022).

Inquiries are underway into the cause of the crash.

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