The woman who died in a head-on collision on the Sydney Harbour Bridge on Thursday morning has been identified as 35-year-old Nicole Green.
Police said Ms Green died after her Mitsubishi Mirage, which was travelling north, collided with a BMW driving in the opposite direction. The BMW then collided with a Jeep travelling in the same direction just before 7:15am.
Four others were injured and taken to hospital for medical treatment.
Friends and family have paid tribute to Ms Green on social media in a family group.
“Another angel taken from us way too soon,” friend Bronwyn Robinson wrote on Facebook after the crash.
“May you fly high in heaven you beautiful angel I’ll treasure every single memory we got to share together. Always in our hearts, gone but never forgotten, rest in peace.”
Another friend wrote: “It is so surreal,” according to news.com.au.
Two male passengers in the Ms Green’s car, aged in their 30’s, were taken to Royal Prince Alfred Hospital to be treated for injuries.
The severely injured BMW driver, a 40-year-old woman, was trapped in her car for more than 30 minutes until rescue crews cut the roof off her car.
“She was taken to Royal North Shore Hospital suffering a fractured leg and spinal injuries and remains in a stable condition. She also underwent mandatory testing,” NSW Police said in a statement.
The BMW driver’s passenger, a 40-year-old man, was uninjured but was also taken to Royal North Shore as a precaution.
"The lady (BMW driver) ... was conscious throughout. She was obviously concerned and in pain but she was, all things given, in reasonably good spirits," NSW Ambulance chief superintendent Cameron Edgar said.
The driver of the Jeep, a 49-year-old woman, was uninjured.
Acting Superintendent Paul Dunstan said at the time CCTV footage of the incident was “confronting” to watch.
“It would appear at this stage that the vehicle travelling in the northbound direction has crossed two lanes of traffic and collided with the vehicle travelling south which was in its correct lane,” he said.
“I have seen footage of the incident, and that’s how it appears in the early stages.”
NSW Ambulance duty operations manager Lucky Phrachanh said paramedics were shocked by what they saw.
"It was a horrific scene to encounter this morning ... paramedics and emergency services never want to attend these types of accidents," Mr Phrachanh said.
