Narooma Princes Highway crash, woman aged 25 dead

Police have confirmed a 25-year-old woman has died in a collision on the Princes Highway, 2km south of Narooma on Monday.

Narooma police said the woman was travelling northbound in a Ford Fiesta and collided with a southbound light truck towing a chipper trailer.

Police said the roadway was wet at the time.

A NSW Police Media spokeswoman said two paramedic units responded at 7.06am.

The 36-year-old male truck driver was taken to hospital in a stable condition for mandatory blood testing.

A crime scene was established and both lanes of the highway were closed to all traffic as police began investigations.

Narooma Fire and Rescue and Narooma VRA crews were on standby throughout the day.

Light vehicles were diverted to an alternate route via the Old Highway which added an extra 15-minutes to travel time.

As the Old Highway is mostly unsealed, heavy vehicles were parked and trips were delayed. The highway was reopened at approximately 7.20pm.

Police are continuing their investigations.

Emergency crews have urged all motorists to take the utmost care during the busy Easter weekend and the school holidays.

On November 8, 2018, a 39-year-old woman was flown to Canberra in a critical condition after her vehicle collided with a truck on the Highway south of Narooma.
