A truck driver has been airlifted after becoming trapped in his crashed rig on the Hume Highway.
Emergency services descended on the crash site after receiving reports of a truck rollover at Holbrook just before noon on Monday.
Police, Fire and Rescue NSW crews and teams of paramedics, including a rescue helicopter, were tasked to the highway between Holbrook-Wagga Road and Albury Street.
Upon arrival they found the truck had come to rest on its side in the centre median strip, between the northbound and southbound lanes of the Hume.

The driver, a man believed to be aged in his 20s, was trapped inside the truck.
A spokesperson for NSW Ambulance confirmed the man was being treated for an arm injury, trapped by compression, and several crews were on site.
He was eventually freed and airlifted to hospital.
Traffic conditions slowed on the highway while emergency services worked to free the man, clear the debris and salvage the truck, which was carrying a load of bark chips.
Single lanes were closed in both directions and were yet to lift by 3pm.
"The truck had crashed heading northbound," FRNSW's Superintendent Stewart Alexander said.
"There still remains a southbound and northbound lane closed while a salvage company is working to right that truck and remove it.
"FRNSW will remain on scene as there is a small diesel spill and we will clean that up once the truck is righted and out of the way. It was excellent work by SES, RFS, Ambulance and police and of course FRNSW."
