Highway traffic delays after truck rollover north of Byron

There have been two highway crashes north of Byron this morning.

Man dead after boat capsizes near Yamba

Police say a man has died and a second has been taken to hospital after a boat capsized south of Yamba this morning.

Traffic is flowing again on the Pacific Highway, which was closed for almost 12 hours last night after a truck accident at Wardell around 7.30pm.

A fully loaded cattle truck lost control and rolled on the highway near Boundary Creek Road, closing traffic in both directions.

Cattle were thrown from the truck during the accident and a number had to be rounded up and others euthanased following the accident.

The driver was uninjured but the accident brought down powerlines, which were due to be repaired around 8am this morning, causing further delays on the highway.
