A fiery crash in Sydney’s north has left a truck driver dead and is expected to cause peak hour chaos for commuters.
Emergency workers called to the M1 at Mount Kuring-Gai about 2.30am on Tuesday found a prime mover had crashed into the median strip and rolled.
Police said the truck caught fire and its load of wool was burned. A body believed to be that of the driver was found inside the rig.
Both directions of the M1, one of Sydney’s main arteries, are currently closed and traffic is being diverted.
Operations at the scene are expected to continue throughout the morning.
