Truck Crash Closes M1 Pacific Motorway at Mandalong

BY IAN CROUCH

Traffic is back to normal after a bad crash on the M1 at Mandalong overnight.

A southbound semi-trailer loaded with steel slammed into a slow-moving line marking truck at about 11 o'clock last night.

The two drivers escaped injury, however the motorway was closed for 4 hours while the crash scene was cleared.

Fire crews from Morisset and a Hazmat unit from Berkeley Vale cleaned up 400 of litres of diesel and 100 litres of hydraulic fluid from a 300 metre stretch of the motorway.

Police say the drivers returned negative roadside breath tests.

Investigations are continuing.
