According to reports, the driver managed to escape unharmed from the early morning incident, however the truck is almost vertical down the embankment and will require a 100-tonne crane to remove it.

All southbound traffic is being diverted via Tarean Road (the old highway) through Karuah.

This diversion is suitable for all vehicles.
