“It’s a terrible situation. Hopefully everyone that has gone to hospital or is getting looked after is ok,” he said.
The crash forced the closure of the busy highway westbound between Murdoch Dr and Riseley St for a number of hours before it was reopened at about 12.30pm.
Police are investigating whether a medical episode triggered the incident.
