A father has been killed in a late-night car chase after an SUV he was travelling in crashed into a fuel tanker while he was escaping a gunman on Saturday night.
Daniel Clulow, 27, was at a party in the Illawarra region, south of Sydney, and left with three people after his friend became involved in a confrontation with another group.
Mr Clulow, his sister and a young woman and a man then got into a Ford Territory, before another car started chasing them along the Princes Highway at Albion Park, and fired shots at the car.

‘I have been told they were being chased and someone pulled guns on them. His sister sped up to get away and crashed,’ close family friend Leanne Shooter told the Daily Telegraph.
She said there was allegedly two cars that were speeding down the road, and the second car was shooting at the car in front.
A nearby witness confirmed hearing gun shots right before the car crash.
The first car then crashed into a fuel tanker truck outside a service station at 2.25 am on Saturday, and became wedged under the tank.
