Woman killed in horror truck and car crash

A woman has died in a crash between a truck and car in the Lake Macquarie area this morning.

Just after 4.30am, a b-double hit a Ford Falcon sedan on the M1 Pacific Motorway at Killingworth, about 8.5 kilometres north of the Ryhope interchange.

It’s believed the Ford was stationary at the time of the crash.


The sole occupant of the sedan, 49-year-old woman, died at the scene.

The male truck driver was not injured in the crash but has been taken to John Hunter Hospital for mandatory blood and urine testing.

One lane of the M1 Pacific Motorway is currently closed northbound at Killingworth.

Motorists travelling in the area should allow plenty of additional travel time.
