Truck Company Under Microscope After M1 Crash

Police from Orana Mid-Western Police District and Crash Investigation Unit have established a crime scene and are investigating the circumstances surrounding the crash.

Two people died at the scene and eight people were taken to Dubbo Base Hospital.

In a fourth auto were the driver, a 26-year-old woman who suffered facial injuries and was taken to Dubbo Hospital, a 24-year-woman who was taken to Royal North Shore Hospital with a suspected spinal injury, a two-year-old girl and a 19-year-old who were taken to Dubbo Base Hospital with minor injuries.

"We need trucks on our roads but we need operators who are doing the right thing. and at this point, I don't see that that is the majority of heavy vehicle providers and users in Australia", she said.

One vehicle is believed to be completely crushed under a truck, a NSW Ambulance spokesman said.

Conditions and ages of the people involved are not known at this stage.

Police said it's too early to say what caused the crash, but urged people to rest when they need to, and avoid using drugs or alcohol when driving.

Crash investigators and SafeWork NSW officers are en route to the scene.

"The driver was, I understand, three or four hours trapped at the scene".

The tragic incident unfolded just after midday on the Newell Highway, north of Dubbo.

NSW Roads Minister Melinda Pavey said the B-double truck failed to pull up at a stop sign and smashed into the line of vehicles.

"We are having many more heavy vehicles on the roads in NSW, and part of that is the work we're doing in major construction projects such as North Connex and West Connex in Sydney", she said. But I wasn't able to grab them because they needed to be cut out'.

Authorities on Wednesday began investigating a transport company involved in Monday's fiery crash on the M1 south of Newcastle that killed a tanker driver.

"We won't be afraid to tackle those that are doing the wrong thing".

The truck driver is suffering leg and pelvic injuries.

Two other truck drivers were killed near Grafton when their trucks collided on the same day.
