Police responding to truck crash at SE Freeway, South Australia

The South-Eastern Freeway at Callington is closed after a truck crash overnight.

Just after 1am on Tuesday 15 December, patrols and emergency crews were called to the freeway near the Callington exit, after a prime mover carrying containers of acid, left the freeway and crashed into the barrier on the median strip.

The driver, a 52-year-old man from Victoria, was taken to Murray Bridge Hospital with minor injuries after being trapped in the cabin for a short time.

Motorists are advised that the freeway is closed for all eastbound traffic between Monarto and Callington with diversions in place at the Old Princes Highway. Speed restrictions will be in place for all westbound traffic.

It is expected the freeway will not be cleared until later this afternoon and investigations are continuing into the circumstances surrounding the crash.
