A man has been killed in a horror crash after a truck smashed into several vehicles on the NSW south coast.
The fatal collision occurred when the B-double truck crossed onto the wrong side of the Hume Highway near Berrima and hit several vehicles, including the victim’s ute, early Saturday, police said.
Authorities were called to the scene but the injured man, who was trapped in his vehicle, could not be saved.

Police are urging witnesses or anyone with dashcam footage of the incident to come forward.
Southbound lanes of the Hume Highway are closed in the area with all traffic being diverted on to Medway Road.
Motorists have been urged to avoid the area, delay their trip or find an alternate route if possible.
The crash is the second horrific truck crash in the region this week. On Wednesday, a food truck crashed and burst into flames on the highway near Berrima.
That smash shut the Hume Highway after the truck hit a safety barrier on the Wingecarribee Bridge and was left hanging over the side of the bridge.
