Truck fire on the F3 at Berowra

Published: 17th July 2007

A truck accident and fire on the F3 near Berowra resulted in all south bound lanes of the F3 being closed this afternoon. Fire crews from Berowra, Hornsby and Hazmat specialists from Berkeley Vale attended the fire with the first firefighters on scene within six minutes to find the truck engulfed in flames. Fire crews extinguished the fire and contained a spill of diesel enabling one lane of the F3 to be reopened. The truck was carrying a load of cement, a large amount of which spilled onto the roadway, requiring a street sweeper to assist with the clean up.
