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.

The workers were also members of the Woodburn State Emergency Service, unit controller Jim McCormack said.

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.
