Pseudoephedrine with a street value of more than $13 million has been found in the back of a car after an accident in Sydney’s south.

Just before 7:30pm (AEDT) on Friday a car crashed into two parked cars at Bardwell Park and the driver ran from the scene.

Officers investigating the crash found ice chests and buckets filled with vacuum-sealed bags of white powder.

Police are still looking for the driver.

Inspector Gary Charlesworth from St George Local Area Command says police investigating the incident found 160 kilograms of white powder in the car.

“They’ve been presumptively tested and the drug is pseudoephedrine,” he said.

“Further investigations are obviously continuing in relation to identifying the driver.

“One witness saw him leave the scene dressed in a grey hooded sweatshirt and black track pants.”
