Visitors impacted by truck crashes on the Escort Method and Mitchell Freeway | Central Western Day by day

News, local news,

Traffic is flowing again on both Escort Way and Mitchell Highway, having previously suffered two separate accidents as the wet conditions made life difficult for drivers on Thursday afternoon. Traffic was impacted in both directions as debris was left on the road after a single vehicle accident on the Escort Way, about 12 kilometers outside Orange near Borenore. Ambulance services were called to the location where a truck was reported to have drifted off the road. NSW police confirmed that no people were trapped and that the driver of the truck had got out of the vehicle. This accident was cleared around 3 p.m. and the truck was towed from the scene. At the same time, heavy traffic was built up on the Mitchell Highway after another truck accident near Vittoria. Ambulance services had been called about the accident and it appeared that a truck carrying general waste had pulled a knife. Although traffic was impacted in both directions, the NSW Transport Management Center confirmed that it is still flowing in both directions.
