A 57-year-old man has died after an out-of-control ute ploughed into his Stanwell Park property on Wednesday morning.
The white twin cab utility was heading down Railway Crescent about 8.30am when it crashed into a power pole bringing down wires.
The vehicle then careered through the victim's fence near the corner of Lawrence Hargrave Drive, landing on the porch area and running over the occupant of the home.
The man, who was a carer for his elderly mother, was standing out the front of their house when the accident happened, according to his brother.
A nearby resident said she'd heard a loud bang and came out to see what was going on and could hear the victim's dog crying.
According to first reports from paramedics on scene, the driver was trapped by confinement and the resident had chest, head and leg injuries.
The resident was in a critical state and went into cardiac arrest, but was able to be revived at the time.
A rescue helicopter was sent from Bankstown and landed at the northern end of Stanwell Park beach, before flying the patient to St George Hospital. He succumbed to his injuries later in the day.
The Crash Investigation Unit is investigation what happened, and whether speed may have been a factor.
The 40-year-old driver of the ute was taken to hospital for mandatory testing, but suffered no known injuries.
Paramedics, Fire and Rescue NSW crews and electricity services also attended the scene.
Despite initial reports that a bus was involved in the crash, the NSW Transport Management Centre confirmed that the bus had just pulled over to the side of the road.
