Man killed in horrific crash between truck and motorcycle

A man has died in a horrific crash between a truck and motorcycle in the NSW Central Hunter.

About 11.00pm Monday, emergency services raced to the Hunter Expressway at Buchanan, after receiving reports of a serious crash.

Police said initial investigations suggest a Kawasaki motorcycle was travelling along the Highway when the rider veered off the road, crashed into a fence and came to a rest on the road.


A semi trailer, driven by a 39-year-old man, is believed to have then crashed into the motorcycle and rider.

The motorcyclist, a man believed to be aged in his 20s, died at the scene.

A crime scene has been established and investigations into the crash are ongoing.
