A rideshare vehicle and a ute have collided on Milperra Rd in Milperra about 7.40pm on Sunday to cause a death of father and daughter.

A father and daughter were among four occupants of a Didi Vehicle along side son and driver.

The rideshare vehicle was turning right when it was hit by the ute, NSW Police Assistant Commissioner Brett McFadden said.

Thai Duong, 41, and his daughter Haili, 11 who were backseat passengers died at the scene while Duong’s nine-year-old son Justin, who was also seated in the back, was pulled from the wreck.

Justin was then taken to The Children’s Hospital at Westmead and is in a critical condition.

The driver, 52, was also treated to the scene and taken to Westmead Hospital in a serious but stable condition.

On other hand, the driver, 19, of ute was treated for minor injuries before undergoing mandatory testing at Liverpool Hospital.

Camera footage review clearly showed that the rideshare driver had a single green light with no arrow, meaning he could turn when it was safe to do so but there were other vehicles coming in the opposing direction.

Both a rideshare vehicle’s and ute’s drivers will be interviewed over the coming days.

About the victims, it was revealed that Duong family was a member of St Brendan’s Catholic Primary School in Central Bankstown.

The school has delivered news of the “tragic” event in an email to parents on Monday.

“It is with a very heavy heart that I inform you that the accident being reported in the news this morning involved a member of our school community,” Principal Patricia Laidler said.

The school also sent the deepest condolences to the whole family as they grieve this loss.

“As a school community, we pray for Hailie and her family and she is deeply in our thoughts and prayers,” the school said.

Haili Duong was from year 6 while his brother Justin Duong is from year 4.
