Two Sydney school children die after auto crashes into classroom

The licence of the 52-year-old woman driver was suspended and she was charged with two counts of risky driving causing death and with negligent driving.

NSW Ambulance says nine children under the age of nine are being treated for injuries after a woman crashed into Banksia Road Public School on Tuesday morning.

The other 19 children in the classroom at the time of the crash were seen by paramedics at the scene.

Photos from the scene show the vehicle, driven by a woman, 52, nearly completely inside a classroom where children had been learning.

A class of 24 year three students was inside the building when the auto crashed into it at about 9.45am yesterday.

"He was saying "I want my mum".

Police charged the woman with two counts of risky driving.

The ABC understands Ms Al-Shennag was a parent at the school.

Police established a crime scene and Ms Al-Shennag was later charged with two counts of risky driving occasioning death and one count of negligent driving.

Year 4 student Mariam Issmail was in a nearby classroom when the SUV ploughed into the school.

Five students were hospitalised and the two boys died of "multiple traumas", police said. Seventeen children and a female teacher were assessed on the grounds by paramedics.

The woman's lawyer has told the press that she is "deeply sorry for the loss and hurt suffered by the children, the school, the families and the community".

"Everything went blank", she said.

"It is very, very hard because we are parents ourselves, we are human beings", she added.

Police are investigating how the crash happened, but NSW Police Commander Stuart Smith said: 'We do not believe this was an intentional act'.

Her licence was also suspended and she was released on bail. Police are asking parents who are collecting their children to attend the Boronia Rd school entrance.

The road has been blocked, but one parent of each child is being allowed to approach the school gate as police try to control crowds at the chaotic scene.
