One person has been killed and several others injured, after a car crashed into a shop front at Kogarah, in Sydney’s South.

Police say a teenager was killed in the crash and four people taken to hospital, whilst the female driver is been treated for shock.

The vehicle ran off the road and in to a chemist, on the corner of Montgomery Street and Railway Parade, around 11:30am local time.
