About 8.30pm a black Honda Integra was travelling east along Punchbowl Rd when it collided head-on with a gold Ford XR6 travelling west and intending to turn right into Cosgrove Rd. Both 18-year-old drivers were trapped in their vehicles for a short period and had to be freed by emergency services. The Greenacre man who was driving the Integra suffered leg injuries and was taken to St George Hospital where he is in a serious but stable condition. His passenger, 18, from Bankstown, was also hospitalised, suffering bruising and suspected internal injuries. The driver of the Ford, an 18-year-old Regents Park woman, was also taken to hospital with severe bruising. Punchbowl Rd had to be partially closed and did not reopen until 12.30am.

Child, sitter held at knifepoint AN intruder wearing a bala- clava subjected a babysitter and a four-year-old child to a terrifying ordeal during a home invasion in Cabarita last week. The man entered the house about 7pm on Friday, armed with what appeared to be a knife. The middle-aged female babysitter was alone in the house with the child. Police say the male wanted to access parts of the house and demanded that the owners return home. He held the two occupants for several hours, before leaving empty-handed. The woman and child were not injured. The intruder is described as tall and Caucasian. He was wearing gloves, grey tracksuit pants and a black top. Anyone with infor- mation should call Burwood police on 9745 8479 or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000. special buys from thursday 21 aug produce prices effective 19/08/08 to 25/08/08 weekly news smarter shopping aldi.com.au OPENING HOURS: See your local store or www.aldi.com.au for details.
