Man Stabbed As Driver Flees Two Car Crash In Sydney's West
A man has spent the night in Liverpool Hospital after being stabbed following a car accident in Sydney's west.
Police were called to Wyattville Drive, West Hoxton, at about 1 am Monday morning following a two-vehicle crash.
When they arrived, the driver was nowhere to be seen and neither was the second vehicle.
Neighbours said they raised the alarm after they were woken to a “crashing sound” followed by a man desperately screaming “call the police, call the police”.
“Some guy came up to my house, blood everywhere, banging on the front door,” Kirsty Gillgren told 10 News First.
“I didn’t see him, I kept my door locked [but] he had urgency in his voice…so I thought I better ring the police.”
The West Hoxton mother’s front porch is blood-speckled and her front window has a dried red handprint, where the 25-year-old had cried for help.
Emergency crews found him a short time later at an address 350 metres away from the scene with multiple stab wounds.
"This area is really nice it's safe last night showed another side,” Gillgren said.
Security cameras captured the terrifying moment the cars collided and the man was stabbed.
The passenger of the second vehicle can be seen lunging through the car's window, appearing to stab and punch his victim more than a dozen times, before driving away.
The 25-year-old was treated at the scene and taken to Liverpool Hospital where he remained overnight in a serious but stable condition.
He has since been discharged and is waiting to speak with police.
Officers are now on the hunt for two other people believed to have been driving a light-coloured Holden Commodore.
