The crash occurred just before 5am under the Carrington road overbridge, police said.

One person had serious injuries.

Police had diverted city-bound traffic from the motorway onto Great North Road at Waterview, however all lanes were now open.

Traffic was now free-flowing, but commuters were faced with huge delays for hours after the smash.
