A man who fled the scene of a car crash last night has been arrested.

About 9.45pm on Sunday, police were called to Evan Street, Penrith following reports of a motor vehicle crash.

Officers attached to Nepean Police Area Command arrived at the scene to find a van had driven into a parked ute.

Two men were found trapped in the vehicle. Emergency services extracted the pair, who had both suffered leg injuries. They were transported to Nepean Hospital in a serious but stable condition.

He is expected to appear at Parramatta Local Court tomorrow.
