Teen Killed In Car Crash On Unmarked Road In Sydney's West

A teenaged boy has tragically lost his life overnight after the vehicle he was travelling in left the road and crashed in Sydney's west.

According to 9News, the 19-year-old P-plater was travelling along Ninth Avenue in Penrith at about 8pm when he lost control of his ute and crashed into a "tall, metal fence".

Emergency services attended to the young man but he tragically died at the scene.

"I heard a big bang, I thought something might've fallen in the garage," local resident David Harding said, explaining that he ran towards the wreckage. 

"It was pretty scary to see someone in a lot of pain.

"I don't think there was a lot anyone could do, we didn't want to try and move him because if he's got an injury to his back or his neck or something like that."

Family members were last night seen comforting each other at the scene.

The incident has highlighted the lack of road markings along sections of Ninth Avenue; the local council reportedly shut down "recent calls to update it white markings".
