An elderly woman has died days after her car smashed through a railing and plunged about six metres onto Maroubra beach.

Emergency crews were called to the popular beach on Wednesday afternoon after the car crashed through the barrier on Marine Parade and landed on the sand.

The 86-year-old woman driver was airlifted to Royal North Shore Hospital in a serious condition with head and spinal injuries. She died in hospital on Saturday.

An 80-year-old male passenger remains in the same hospital in a critical condition.
