Seven people have been hospitalised...five taken to Liverpool Hospital and two to Campbelltown Hospital.

Three FRNSW trucks, including a Hazmat appliance, were dispatched to the scene, along with NSW Police, NSW Ambulance, the Rural Fire Service and Roads and Maritime Services (RMS).
The road was blocked for almost an hour whilst oil was mopped up and the scene cleared.
Authorities are determining what caused the crashes.
