Six hospitalised as RFS tanker rolls – South Coast

An investigation is underway following a single-vehicle crash on the state’s South Coast.

About 10.55pm yesterday (Thursday 23 January 2020), a NSW Rural Fire Service tanker was travelling north on the Princes Highway at Mogo, when it left the road and rolled down an embankment.

All six crew members were able to remove themselves from the vehicle. They were treated at the scene by NSW Ambulance Paramedics, before being taken to hospital for treatment to non-life-threatening injuries, including neck pain, back pain and lacerations.

The driver has undertaken mandatory blood and alcohol testing.

Officers from South Coast Police District attended and commenced inquiries into the circumstances surrounding the incident.

Inquiries are continuing and no further information is available at this time.

Anyone with information or dashcam footage is urged to contact South Coast police or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
