An early morning B-double truck collision on the Sturt Highway in Wagga has put an elderly woman in hospital with a broken arm.
Wagga police Chief Inspector Andrew Spliet said police attended the intersection of Tarcutta Street and Hammond Avenue at 5.40am on Thursday.
“Upon arrival, police saw that a B-double truck and a Honda CRV had been involved in a collision at the intersection,” Inspector Spliet said.
“As a result of that collision, a 79-year-old female has been treated by ambulance at the scene and conveyed to Wagga Base Hospital with laceration to her right leg and a broken right arm.
“She is currently receiving treatment in hospital as a result of those injuries. I understand she is currently in a stable condition.”
Inspector Spliet said the cause of the collision was still under investigation and police were reviewing dashcam footage that was collected at the scene.
“We are calling on any witnesses to the collision to come forward to Wagga police,” he said.
“Police are reviewing (the truck driver’s) log books to make sure fatigue wasn’t a factor in the collision.”
