NSW Police has confirmed that two 8-year-old boys have been killed after a 4WD crashed into their school in Greenacre, Sydney, this morning. According to a police report, the car, which was being driven by a 52-year-old local woman, entered a Banksia Road Public School classroom filled with kids at about 10:31 a.m.

There were 24 children in the class at the time, and 17 were assessed for injuries on the scene, as was their adult teacher. Five children were rushed to Westmead Children's Hospital with critical injuries, including the two young boys who could not be revived.
