Two drivers escape fiery truck crash in city’s west

Paramedics say it is a miracle two drivers have survived a fiery truck crash on a major thoroughfare in Sydney’s west.

Emergency services were called to Victoria Street in Wetherill Park at 6.30am on Thursday to reports of a truck accident.

“Two semi trailers are involved and they’re both on fire now,” Fire and Rescue NSW Superintendent Brendan Hurley said shortly before 7am.

NSW Police said officers were called to reports two B-double trucks had crashed and caught fire.

“Both drivers sustained minor injuries and were treated at the scene by NSW Ambulance paramedics,” police said.

NSW Ambulance Inspector Joe Ibrahim said two male patients had been transferred to Liverpool Hospital in a stable condition with some facial and chest injuries.

“One of them was trapped in that truck for a short period of time whilst it was alight,” he told 2GB radio.

“It’s truly a miracle that they weren’t more seriously injured.”
