Traffic on the Pacific Highway has ground to a halt after a B-double truck rolled near Broadwater just before 1pm this afternoon, blocking the southbound lane.

At 3pm, one lane remained closed, the RMS were still on scene, and a contraflow was in place for at least a further two hours, Inspector Bill McKenna of Richmond Local Area Command told Echonetdaily.

‘The truck driver has been taken to Lismore Base Hospital suffering lacerations,’ he said.

‘Power lines affected by the accident have been isolated and the energy supply should resume shortly,’ he added.
