Multiple crashes on expressway

TWO women were taken to hospital following separate incidents on the Northern Expressway on Monday morning.

A pregnant woman was treated in hospital after a crash near Waterloo Corner, while another woman also sustained minor injuries following a crash at Angle Vale.

The expressway was reduced to one lane near the Angle Vale exit as emergency services cleaned up the roads.

Both incidents, which occurred at around 8am, were single vehicle accidents and nobody else was involved in either crash.

CFS volunteers said two good Samaritans at both incidents stopped on the side of the road to ensure the two women were okay.

A CFS spokesperson said, while incidents like this can be scary, volunteers are focused on clearing the situation for road users as quickly as possible.

“Incidents like these are all about, most importantly, taking care of those involved, but then dealing with the backlog of traffic that ensues,” the spokesperson said.
