The teenager was reportedly arrested but not charged.

Three women and two men in the car were killed when the vehicle crashed into a tree on East Parade in Buxton, near Picton.

Police believe some of those killed may have been as young as 14 or 15 and attended local schools.

Superintendent Paul Fuller said it was one of the worst accident scenes he had seen in 38 years.

“It’s a horrific accident scene and a traumatic event like this will have a devastating impact on families, friends and the local community,” he said.

“We believe some of the children are attending the local high school.

“We have spoken to the principal of the high school to facilitate counseling at the school tomorrow when the students arrive.”

Fire and Rescue NSW Superintendent Adam Dewberry said “it was absolutely chaotic and devastating” at the scene.

“All emergency services, police, ambulance, are facing a significant, critical, traumatic scene,” he added.

The driver was treated at the scene by paramedics before being taken to Liverpool Hospital for tests.

A report is prepared for the coroner.

Councilor Michael Banasik spoke of a “terrible tragedy”.

“It’s devastating for Buxton and the general public, you know, it’s just awful,” he told 9 News.

“Buxton is a great place, a small, small town and yes that’s a terrible tragedy no matter where it happened.”
