Update: Sunday 5pm
An elderly Goulburn couple was lucky to more serious injury when their vehicle struck a B-double truck on the Hume Highway on Sunday.
Police said the man and woman were driving their Ford Territory north on the Hume Highway several kilometres north of Marulan at about 2.40pm when they decided to do a u-turn at the Highland Way intersection.
The vehicle hit the front of the truck and then its rear trailer, causing extensive damage.
Sergeant Jeff Morgan said the 85-year-old woman was suffering internal pain but her injuries were non-life threatening. She was freed by Marulan RFS, which was first on the scene.
Her 81-year-old husband was uninjured and was released by Police Rescue after being trapped by confinement.
Both were taken to Goulburn Base Hospital by road ambulance.
The 27-year-old truck driver was not injured. His vehicle was later driven to the Marulan truck checking station as a matter of course. The Ford Territory was towed from the crash site.
One southbound lane was closed until 4.10pm to allow emergency crews to work. Traffic was reported to be heavy in the area during the closure.
Emergency services are on the scene of a truck and car crash near Marulan.
At 2.40pm police, ambulance and the Rural Fire Service were called reports of a crash between a truck and car on the Hume Highway's southbound lane, at the Highland Road intersection.
A NSW Ambulance spokesman said an 81-year-old man trapped by confinement in the car was not injured but his 85-year-old wife was complaining of stomach pain.
The 27-year-old truck driver had complained of rib pain.
While services initially thought a helicopter was needed to airlift patients, this had been called off. The injured people will instead be transported to hospital by road ambulance.
A tow truck is en route to the scene.
Southern Tablelands RFS zone manager George Shepherd said a crew of five from Marulan was attending for fire protection. However none of the vehicles were on fire.
He and police confirmed that one southbound lane was closed but traffic was still flowing.
More to come.
