One man is dead and another is injured after a car being pursued by police crashed into a power pole in Sydney’s south-west overnight.
Police say highway patrol officers from Campbelltown tried to stop the driver of a Mitsubishi Lancer about 11.20pm on Thursday.
The officers began a pursuit when the driver did not stop. The car struck the pole on Eastwood Road, Leppington, a short time later.
A male passenger was thrown from the car and died at the scene, police said.
