A teen driver has been granted his freedom after he allegedly crashed his car into a power pole and injured his four high school-aged passengers.
Jordan Tye Maaka, 18, appeared in Sutherland Local Court on Wednesday after failing to appear the previous day as he was in hospital and unable to attend.
An arrest warrant was issued for the Carramar resident on Tuesday afternoon and he was apprehended by police for the second time and subsequently released on bail in the evening.
Police allege the 18-year-old lost control of his black Honda Accord when driving dangerously around a corner on Stoney Creek Rd in Beverly Hills on Friday morning.
Police allege the suspended driver crashed through a solid fence at 6am before hitting a power pole in the residential area in Sydney’s west.
Mr Maaka broke his arm in the horrific crash and his four passengers all had to be hospitalised for their injuries.
Two girls, both 16 years old, and two boys, 15 and 16 years old, suffered injuries including a fractured pelvis, a fractured collar bone, and a laceration so deep, the jaw bone protruded through the skin.
All four high school students have since been discharged from hospital.
Photos from the crash site show the impact had transformed the Honda Accord into a mangled and unrecognisable mess.
Fire and Rescue NSW revealed they had to use hydraulic tools to cut one of the boys free from the car after he was trapped by the impact.
Mr Maaka was charged with dangerous driving occasioning grievous bodily harm, negligent driving causing grievous bodily harm, three counts of causing injury while in charge of motor vehicle, and driving while suspended.
Mr Maaka was granted bail on Sunday after appearing in court while in hospital under police guard and then subsequently arrested on Sunday.
Court documents show Mr Maaka was unable to attend court on Tuesday because he was in hospital, seeking treatment for the injuries he suffered during the horrific crash.
The court heard the hospital sent through proof of the teen’s hospital attendance, but the court did not receive it.
The teen was allowed to continue on his strict conditional bail, which prohibits him from leaving the house unless accompanied by his mother or attending work.
He will return to Sutherland Local Court in two weeks.
The horrific crash came only days after an 18-year-old crashed his car into a tree in Buxton and killed five passengers between the ages of 14 and 16.
