Big rig crash trig­gers road de­lays

Sunday Territorian - - NEWS -

THE Stu­art Hwy was closed for part of yes­ter­day af­ter a road train rolled about 45km north of Kather­ine.

NT Po­lice said no one was in­jured in the ac­ci­dent, which oc­curred at about 5.53am.

Ini­tial re­ports were that the high­way was blocked. It was par­tially opened to traf­fic just be­fore 5pm, with re­duced speed lim­its.

One mo­torist, who com­mented on the NT Po­lice Face­book post, said the rear two trail­ers were flipped.

She said it ap­peared the road train had been head­ing south be­fore it crashed.

“Cab and first trailer up­right,” she posted.

Queues of driv­ers re­port­edly waited more than an hour to get past.
