The Lismore–Bangalow Road has reopened after a truck crash on a bend near Nashua around 5am saw it closed for most of the morning.
Police and emergency services spent almost six hours removing wreckage that closed the road in both directions.
The 31-year-old driver of the truck was cut out of his cabin by rescuers earlier this morning and flown by the Westpac rescue helicopter to Lismore Base Hospital suffering multiple injuries but he was later reported to be in a stable condition.
The truck is believed to have rolled after failing to negotiate a bend.
The busy road used by thousands of vehicles during the morning and afternoon commuter period is notorious for accidents.
A semitrailer crashed on the road last month near the Friday Hut Road intersection.
