Highway blocked after caravan and truck collide

THE Pacific Hwy was closed for close to two hours at Glenugie yesterday after an out-of-control caravan collided with a truck, spilling its contents on to the road.

Police said the Ford Falcon was travelling north on the Pacific Hwy about 3.30pm when the caravan it was towing started to fishtail on the wet road.

The car collided with the guardrail at the Glenugie Creek bridge, before a truck clipped the caravan and ripped it apart.

Emergency crews worked to clear the road of debris while trucks continued to bank up in both directions.

Cars were diverted off the highway.

Luckily the occupants of the car, believed to be in their 30s, walked away from the accident unharmed.

Police said the driver of the truck was taken to hospital to receive treatment for minor injuries.
