NSW base jump report triggers truck crash



A truck crash near a NSW motorway bridge may have been caused by a base jumper throwing himself off the structure. Emergency services were called to the Hume Motorway where it crosses the Nepean River following reports on Thursday morning that a man had climbed onto the bridge’s railing and leapt off. Authorities were unable to find the man and, after being told he may have been wearing a backpack, are investigating if he was a base jumper.

The bridge is a known base-jumping location. As traffic built up near the incident a truck crashed into the rear of another truck about 11am, a NSW Ambulance spokesman told AAP. The driver did not need to go to hospital.

One southbound lane has reopened and traffic diversions are in place.

Emergency crews remain at the scene.
