A man is recovering in hospital after suffering multiple injuries when the Toyota Hilux he was driving collided with a bus on the Princes Highway just outside of Berry Tuesday morning.
NSW Police said emergency services were called around 6am after it’s alleged the ute crossed to the wrong side of the road and hit a bus.
Three people were treated at the scene by NSW Ambulance paramedics.
An Ambulance spokesman said a 39-year-old male was taken to Wollongong Hospital with pelvic and abdominal injuries as well as injuries to his arm, leg and knee – he was conscious and breathing at the time. His 35-year-old passenger was uninjured.
The driver, and sole occupant of the bus, a 60-year-old man, was treated for minor injuries and taken to Shellharbour Hospital for further treatment.
The accident forced the closure of the Princes Highway for at least one hour.
Officers from Shoalhaven Local Area Command are now investigating and have urged witnesses to come forward and speak with police.
