After two of them died in a deadly accident in Sydney’s south-west, a man woken up by alleged teenage car thieves has been charged.
The 37-year-old man from Edmondson Park was charged with a series of serious offences on Sunday afternoon.
One of them is unsafe driving that causes death.
He was startled by a revving Holden Commodore about 4 a.m. on Sunday, assumed to be his, reportedly stolen by a teenage trio.
As he allegedly gave chase, the teenagers in nearby Bossley Park collided with a light pole.
Two of the boys were thrown out of the car and died-aged 15 and 17.
The third, a 17-year-old, survived the accident and is in hospital with injuries that are not life-threatening.
Joe Ibrahim, NSW Ambulance Inspector, said the crash scene was one of the worst paramedics he’d ever seen.
“The scale of this accident is absolutely horrendous,’’ he said.
“It is probably one of the worst, in fact, it is one of the worst. A senseless and tragic loss of young life, which should never have occurred.”
