An argument between five people resulted in an axe assault and a two-car crash in Freemans Reach on Monday night.

Police said the confrontation involved three 24-year-old women, one 23-year-old woman and a 19-year-old man.

Officers responded to a call about two cars crashing through a fence shortly before 7pm on Kurmond Road.Windsor detectives told the Gazette the accident occurred after an earlier alleged axe assault at a home on Terrace Road amongst the group of people following a back-and-forth phone argument that day.

“We believe people had turned up to the home on Terrace Road and a confrontation between the parties started,” Detective Inspector Paul McHugh said.

Inspector McHugh said the parties ‘‘armed themselves’’, resulting in two of the women being injured by an axe.

Reports said vehicles left the home a short time later.

“The two cars reached the intersection of Kurmond Road. One car hit the other, resulting in them both losing control and going through a fence,” Inspector McHugh said. 

Detectives believe a third car – a green Commodore – attended the crash site and picked up people to take them back to the home on Terrace Road before emergency crews arrived at the scene.

When emergency crews arrived, paramedics treated the drivers for minor injuries.

Paramedics were later alerted by police that there were another two females with injuries a short distance from the crash site. 

Paramedics treated the two women before they were transported to Nepean Hospital.
