Logs block highway after Murchison crash

A driver has been airlifted to hospital after his truck crashed and spilled logs over State Highway 6 near the Owen River, north of Murchison, today.

Police say the truck rolled and a second truck jack-knifed in icy conditions at around 3:30pm.

The driver of the logging truck was initially trapped following the accident.

Crews are working to clear the road, but police say the highway is expected to be closed for several hours this evening. The second truck was also blocking the highway after losing control.
