It’s believed the pair were not wearing seat belts.

They were both transported to John Hunter Hospital with serious injuries.

The male passenger was incubated in the intensive care unit and examined for possible spinal injuries.

Meanwhile the driver suffered arm and pelvis injuries.

Police are investigating the cause of the crash – and whether alcohol or drugs were a factor.
