The 27-year-old nurse was trapped inside the wreckage as 20 firefighters eventually managed to free her body, before she was taken to hospital where she remains in intensive care.

Danielle and Billy's father spoke with reporters on Friday morning revealing his traumatic experience when answering a call late on Thursday night.

"We got a phone call… a bad accident… son and daughter was involved," an emotional Rodney Oldfield recalled.

"They sedated her all night and she's in the theatre now."

Investigators say a 14-year-old boy from Bidwill was behind the wheel on a joyride with a car full of teenage friends.

"It's very alarming when you're 14 and you’re behind the wheel," Deputy Inspector Katie Orr said.
