People come together to mourn young Sydney crash victims

Parents, students and members of the wider community have come together to mourn the two young victims of the tragic car crash at a Sydney primary school.

Maha Al-Shennag, a 52-year-old mother of four, was behind the wheel of the Toyota Kluger which slammed into a demountable classroom where 24 kids were drawing at about 9.45am on Tuesday.

Two eight-year-old boys were found by first responders among the blood and chaos, and were rushed to Westmead Children's Hospital. Both passed away due to cardiac arrest.

People gathered outside Banksia Road Public School on Tuesday evening, laying flowers and remembering the young lives that were lost.

A large notice was posted, handwritten by students from the year above the 3T class that saw their room collapsed by the out-of-control vehicle.

'Rest in Peace Andrew and Jihad, you will never be forgotten,' the sign reads.
