Fire and Rescue NSW (FRNSW) crews have used hydraulic tools to rescue two people from the wreckage of a multi-vehicle crash in Sydney's south.

Four cars, including one towing a boat and another fueled by LPG, collided in the northbound lanes of New Illawarra Road in Lucas Heights, around 8:30am.

Technical rescue firefighters removed the sides of two cars to free those trapped inside.

All people involved in the crash, including two young children, were assessed and treated by NSW Ambulance paramedics.

NSW Police were also in attendance, diverting traffic away from the crash site.

Superintendent Adam Dewberry from Fire and Rescue NSW (FRNSW) said this is a timely reminder that calling Triple Zero (000) when you are involved in or see a crash can be the difference between life and death.

The Triple Zero (000) service is the quickest way to get the right resources from emergency services to help you. It should be used to contact Police, Fire or Ambulance services in life-threatening or time-critical situations.
