9 minutes ago
A Swedish man who is in a serious condition in a Sydney hospital after a joy-riding accident in a shopping trolley that killed his mate could be charged, say police.
The two men, both aged 28, were walking home from a night out when they made the fatal decision to jump in the trolley and ride down the steep Coogee Bay Rd in Randwick in the eastern suburbs early on Tuesday morning.
The trolley crossed onto the wrong side of the road and collided with a car at high speed, killing one of the men and leaving his mate hospitalised in a serious but stable condition.
He said the deceased was catapulted metres from the trolley when it struck the car, with the man dying at the scene.
His mate landed in the middle of the road and sustained serious injuries.
He has been taken to St Vincent’s Hospital.
