Bus, two-car crash causes traffic chaos

Update 3.23pm: SUGAR mill workers were among the first on scene of a three-vehicle "fender bender" on the Pacific Highway.

Mr McCormack said his members worked to free one driver, who was trapped inside a mini bus involved in the collision.

A short time later, a SES crew from Woodburn arrived on scene along with two Rural Fire Service crews, police and ambulances on scene just after 1.30pm.
