In an incredible sequence of events two cars were left in a tangled mess after flying into a NSW unit block on Tuesday.

At about 1pm on Tuesday, emergency services were called to Banks Street in Wollongong, following reports two vehicles had crashed into a unit block.

NSW Ambulance Inspector, Troy Pan, was stunned by what he came across.

“I have never seen anything like this so far in my career with NSW Ambulance," he said.

Images released by NSW Ambulance show two vehicles completely destroyed, outside the apartment block, which NSW Police said was unoccupied at the time of the crash.

"Initial inquiries suggest one of the cars was travelling west on Evan Street, when it failed to negotiate a bend and crashed into an unoccupied parked car," NSW Police said in a statement.

"The impact caused both cars to crash into a block of units, which were unoccupied at the time."

Man in Wollongong Hospital with head injuries

In addition to the police, five ambulance crews, including a specialist medical team, attended the scene along with Fire and Rescue crews.

The male driver was the sole occupant of the car and emergency services assisted in removing him from the vehicle.

Emergency crews worked together to "safely extricate the patient from an extremely difficult location", Inspector Pan said.

"The male driver was fortunate not to have sustained more serious injuries – he was very lucky,” he said.

NSW Ambulance confirmed the man in his 30s was treated for head injuries and was transferred to Wollongong Hospital in a stable condition.

Police said road closures are in place and people are urged to avoid the area.

Investigations into what happened are continuing. Anyone with footage or who may have witnessed the crash is urged to contact Wollongong police or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
