A truck driver as well as a pedestrian walking on the sidewalk were injured this morning after the heavy goods vehicle somehow lost control on a bend and overturned on Sydney Road onramp to M7 Edwin Swales just before 9am today.
Rescue Care paramedics arrived on the scene and expected the worst seeing the truck on its side however the cabin was completely crushed on the barriers. Fortunately the driver who had sustained moderate injuries had managed to get out of the truck with the help of bystanders. One pedestrian had sustained minor injuries after being knocked by the truck as it came to a stop.
Rescue Care paramedics treated both patients on scene before transporting them to nearby hospitals for the further care that they required.
At this stage it is unclear what caused the collision however SAPS were on scene and will be investigating further.
