Shortly before 7pm, a 21-year-old woman and her male companion, 22, were knocked down while jogging on Concord Road, Rhodes.

Both were taken to Westmead Hospital, where the woman remains in a critical condition, and the man is now stable.

Anthony Quartarone was driving home from Strathfield station when he witnessed the accident.

“I was stopped at the front of the queue, where it was red. It was green for the car that came through, it was driving normally,” he said.

“Then it skids and I turn my head, next thing I see is a woman flying mid-air, she would have flown metres. I think she just landed on the ground. I believe she had run out in the traffic.”

Mr Quartarone described hearing “halting brakes” and a “bang” when the accident occurred. /**/

Another witness, who owns a local business close to the accident, said she also heard a “thud and a screech of brakes.”

“I ran outside and there were two people lying in the middle of the road in the traffic. I was the first one to assist the people,” said the witness, who asked not to be identified.

“I called back to my husband to call an ambulance.”

She said the injuries of both involved appeared quite severe.

At the scene, a discarded sneaker could be seen lying next to a red Toyota sedan with a heavily smashed windscreen.

NSW Ambulance paramedics treated the man and the woman at the scene, before taking them to Westmead Hospital with head and possible leg injuries.

Officers attached to Burwood Local Area Command established a crime scene and commenced an investigation into the incident.
