A 52-year-old woman who was driving a car which slammed into a Sydney primary school, killing two 8-year-old boys, has been charged with dangerous driving occasioning death and negligent driving.
Maha Al-Shennag drove a Toyota Kluger into a classroom of 24 students at Banksia Road Public School about 9:45am, injuring more than 20 people.
Two boys who were critically injured in the incident later died in Westmead Children's Hospital.
Two eight-year-old girls were also taken to Westmead in a stable condition, and one nine-year-old girl was taken in a serious condition.
It is understood Ms Al-Shennag's son is a student at the school.
Police will examine the vehicle involved to determine whether there were any mechanical problems.
They will also inspect Ms Al-Shennag's mobile phone as they investigate whether distraction was a factor in the incident.
The crash was described as a "scene of carnage" unfolding into "pandemonium" and NSW Ambulance sent 16 vehicles to the incident.
Chaplains also attended the scene and the family members of the two students who died had received counselling.
The woman, who has been charged with two counts of dangerous driving occasioning death and one count of negligent driving, was granted bail and will appear at Bankstown Local Court on November 29.
She was uninjured and her licence has been suspended.
Police earlier today said they believed the incident was a tragic accident and not an intentional act.
