GALLERY: Bridge traffic affected by rush hour collision

UPDATE

One car has been towed away while the second vehicle has been moved to the turning lane so is not obstructing traffic. Both lanes are now open to traffic.

 

9:30am

A black Hyundai sedan has collided with a white Holden sedan from behind. South Grafton Fire and rescue are at the scene. It is believed there has been some sort of spill as emergency services are currently putting sawdust on the road.

No one appears to be injured.

Emergency services have closed off the right-hand lane approaching the bridge while two tow trucks work to remove the two cars.

Traffic is moving, however, motorists are advised to exercise caution while passing through the scene.
