A teenage girl is being treated in hospital for serious burns after she was run over and trapped under a car near Wollongong. A group of 10 drunk teenagers were fighting at a party in Blackbutt in the early hours of Thursday morning when the girl was run over, police say.

The 16-year-old was rescued and taken to St George Hospital, where she remains in a stable condition, Superintendent Stuart Smith told reporters in Sydney.

A 17-year-old male, believed to be the driver, allegedly returned a positive breath test at the scene. He’s been released by police as investigators try to establish who was driving the car.
