Three people have been hospitalised after a slew of accidents in school zones across Sydney during a single morning.
The incidents took place at Beacon Hill, Fairfield and Marrickville where a boy sustained a head injury and was taken to Sydney Children’s Hospital.
The youngster remains in a stable condition after the accident took place on Sydenham Road at 8.20am.

Just 20 minutes earlier, NSW Ambulance paramedics responded to a car and pedestrian collision on Warringah Road in Beacon Hill.
Paramedics treated the patient for head and ankle injuries and she was taken to Royal North Shore Hospital.
NSW Ambulance Inspector Mick Corlis said the incidents are a reminder for drivers to take extra care when in school zones.
“It is a reminder to drivers to be extremely careful in school zones,” he said.
There are lots of people around, especially children who can step onto the road unexpectedly or suddenly appear behind buses or large vehicles.”
Mr Corlis went on to say it was a stroke of luck no one was more seriously injuries in the incidents.
“Car accidents involving children can be quite confronting scenes to attend. This child had a
deep cut to his head with bystanders administering initial first aid. Paramedics then arrived and controlled the bleeding,” he said.
“This incident was one of three accidents this morning to occur in school zones across the
Sydney metropolitan region. Luckily none of the children were seriously injured.”
