A RURAL Fire Service truck has been involved in a multi-vehicle collision north of Sydney in which a woman died after being thrown from a car.
A Toyota Corolla, a Mazda3 and the fire truck collided on the northbound lanes of the freeway at Berowra, north of Sydney, about 10.30pm yesterday.
Emergency services responded and found a 64-year-old woman dead on the road, at first believing she was a pedestrian.
“They’ve since confirmed she was a passenger involved in the collision,” a NSW Police spokesman said.
“It looks as though she’s been ejected from a vehicle and has subsequently died.”
The 76-year-old male driver of the Toyota Corolla had to be cut from the wreckage and was taken to Royal North Shore Hospital with head, internal and suspected spinal injuries.
He was believed to be in a critical condition this morning.
The 33-year-old male driver of the RFS truck and the 24-year-old female driver of the Mazda3 were taken to Hornsby Hospital for treatment of minor injuries.
The RFS truck had just finished helping at another pile-up two kilometres south of the Hawkesbury River Bridge, where eighteen southbound cars were left badly damaged after they ran over a tail shaft that had fallen from a semi-trailer about an hour earlier and fuel was spilled across the road.
The Metropolitan Crash Unit is investigating the fatal crash and anyone with information is asked to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
