BREAKING NEWS from the 88.9fm Newsroom

Just before 1 o’clock this afternoon a semi-trailer hauling a load of hay has ap[parently clipped a commercial van on the dual carriage way on the Oxley Highway just after the overhead railbridge near the Tamworth Golf Club, heading west towards Gunnedah.

The van was flipped and ended up on its roof and police and ambulance attended the scene.

A person in the van was not seriously injured but did receive a nasty knock to the head, according to his mother who arrived on the scene shortly after the incident.

The westward lanes of the highway are closed and police are still investigating.
