A 41-year-old Kellyville woman and her son were hospitalised following a three-car collision in Samantha Riley Drive, Kellyville, on Friday night.

Police said a 45-year-old man from Mount Druitt was driving south on Hezlett Road, Kellyville, at about 9pm when he allegedly failed to stop at a red light at the Samantha Riley Drive intersection.

His grey Mazda sedan side-swiped a black Peugeot sedan travelling west on Samantha Riley Drive.

The Peugeot driver — a woman, 41, from Kellyville — and her son were taken to Westmead Hospital and have since been released but the boy will need further scans.

The other drivers were not injured although the Mazda driven by the man had to be towed away, as did the Peugeot.

Police are awaiting the results of a blood sample from the man before taking action.
