Drivers are being warned to be careful on our roads after a series of serious heavy vehicle accidents across NSW yesterday.

There were two separate incidents of trucks rolling in both Sackville and Eastern Creek, while authorities had to right a truck that left the road at Prestons on the M7.

There was also a serious accident at the Marulan Heavy Vehicle Checking Station, where a B-Double collected the corner of another B-Double.

Emergency services were left to clean up a diesel spill as a result of the crash.

NSW Traffic and Highway Patrol Chief Inspector Phil Brooks says the accidents further highlight the serious risks drivers face on our roads.

“I think it’s only sheer luck that we’re not reporting on a fatality.”
