A giant crane and SafeWork NSW inspectors are on their way to Kiama on Thursday morning after a cement truck rolled while delivering a load.
Around 7:32am emergency services were called to a residential address on Gipps Street. The female driver was treated by Ambulance NSW paramedics for neck pain.
An Ambulance NSW spokeswoman said the cab of the truck was partially crushed, but the woman in her late 30s was able to be freed. She was taken to Shellharbour Hospital.
Meantime, Fire and Rescue NSW Duty Commander Illawarra Andrew Erlik said the road was blocked in both directions with a crane tasked from Sydney to recover the vehicle.
"The recovery process is a crane coming from Sydney, with an extendable arm," he told the Mercury. "It will lift the ... cement vehicle up and swing it over onto the road where it will be righted."
It will be at least 11am on Thursday before the crane arrives.
Inspector Erlik said diesel was leaking from the vehicle, with spilled cement used as a bund to prevent it from flowing into waterways.
WorkSafe has been notified an en route to the scene of the incident.
Traffic into Kiama, from the north, is been diverted via Hothersal Street.
