Residents of Crystal Brook in South Australia have expressed concern over a spate of truck crashes in their neighbourhood and a dangerous stretch of road, they say is responsible for the crashes.

Three crashes have occurred over a 3 week period at a notorious bridge overpass south of the town.

The first crash involved a B-Double truck and the second involved a small car.

The third incident involved another B-Double truck which apparently became airborne for an estimated 30 metres. The driver in that incident was seriously injured and 750 litres of diesel fuel was spilt.

Authorities urged roadusers to stick to the signed speed restrictions in the area as investigations continue into both heavy vehicle crashes.
