NSW Police are attending a multiple fatality in the State’s South-West today.
About 9.50 am a head-on collision occurred between a semi-trailer and a car on the Newell Hwy, 10kms south of Narrandera. An adult and a child travelling in the car were killed instantly. The car was completely destroyed and emergency services are trying to determine the exact number of occupants.
The driver of the semi-trailer was not injured. Rural Fire Service is in attendance as the semi-trailer, carrying cattle feed, has a fuel leak.
Police are advising motorists, especially heavy vehicles, to avoid the area if possible as major delays are expected for most of the day.
The Newell Highway is blocked in both directions and diversions are in place. Northbound is being diverted via Kidman Way, Sturt Highway. Southbound is being diverted via Sturt Highway, Kidman Way.
Forensic Services Group and Griffith Detectives are in attendance and a report is being prepared for the information of the Coroner.
