Truck accident at Yagoona

Published: 31st March 2009

Rescue firefighters from Bankstown and Burwood, firefighters from Revesby and the Duty Commander responded to a serious truck accident at Woodbine Street, Yagoona in the early hours of this morning. Crews were on scene in four minutes to find a semi trailer had rolled, losing a container and blocking the road. The lengthy recovery operation required a crane to lift the container and right the truck and rescue firefighters to extricate the driver. The road was closed during most of the recovery operation. Once the truck was removed, fire crews with assistance from the RTA, cleaned up the area and the road was reopened.
