The driver of the vehicle suffered minor facial injuries. Emergency services worked to extract him for about 30 minutes. Once freed, he was taken to St Vincent’s Hospital in a stable condition.
Passengers on the L2 Randwick tram did not require medical attention.
A witness said she had just finished a boxing class and was waiting for her tram home on Devonshire Street when she saw a car going “heaps fast” down the tracks.
The single-lane road on Devonshire Street has a signposted speed of 40km/h.

“I ran straight down to see if he was all right and I tried to unlock the passenger door but I couldn’t get it open but the window was down,” she told the Herald.
She said she had done a first aid course so she asked the man, who appeared to be in his late 30s or early 40s, if he knew his name, where he was and made sure he was OK and that nobody moved him.
