Photos on Facebook showed the leader of the Labor Party speaking with NSW ambulance officials after his Toyota Camry was involved in a crash with a black Range Rover.

According to witness reports, a P-plate driver allegedly collided with the vehicle Mr Albanese was in.

A NSW Police spokeswoman said officers have been told the Camry was hit by a black Range Rover driven by a man, 17.
