One man has died and another seriously injured when they were struck by a car while riding on a shopping trolley on a street in Randwick overnight.

About 12.20am (Tuesday, November 10), two men aged 28, were believed to have been riding on a metal shopping trolley down Coogee Bay Road when they collided with a vehicle at the intersection of Judge Street.

Both men were thrown from the trolley onto the road and suffered critical injuries.

One of the men died at the scene; the other was taken to St Vincent’s Hospital suffering serious injuries.

The 45-year-old driver of the vehicle was taken to hospital for mandatory testing but was not hurt during the crash.
