Smashed bottles, chunks of concrete and twisted metal littered the ground where a party bus came to a halt in a children’s playground at Rutherford in the early hours of Sunday morning.

Police told Fairfax Media the 52-seater bus was travelling past the Rutherford shopping centre on the New England Highway at 4am when it was involved in a crash.

Fairfax Media understands the bus came to a halt on the opposite side of the four-lane highway after it travelled through two metal fences that surround the playground.

Fairfax Media sought comment from the bus company but the contact number was disconnected.
