A collision involving 2 trucks in Sydney’s south has resulted in the death of both drivers, one of whom had started his work day just 30 minutes prior to the crash.
The 39 year old father of one began his shift at 4:30am on Friday, shortly before his truck collided with another.
The 2 trucks collided head-on near Wilton on a bridge several kilometres east of Picton Road’s intersection with the Hume Motorway.
One of the trucks was a car-carrier and the other a semi-trailer.
The driver of the car-carrier was trapped in the cabin of the heavy vehicle which burst into flames.
The 31 year old driver of the semi-trailer was ejected from the vehicle and died at the scene.
The owner of the one of the trucks described the crash site as carnage.
