Police appeal for help investigating Ewingsdale hwy crash

POLICE investigating Wednesday's shocking crash between two trucks and two cars on the Pacific Highway at Ewingsdale have asked the community for help.

A 64-year-old woman last night remained in a critical condition after suffering serious internal injuries when a Volvo semi-trailer carrying a load of cars smashed into the Mitsubishi 4WD she and her 70-year-old husband were in.

The woman's husband, who had been driving the car, suffered fractured ribs in the crash.

The driver of the Volvo semi-trailer was taken to Gold Coast Hospital with suspected leg and hip fractures.

Police said the Volvo had hit a Kenworth semi-trailer before hitting the Mitsubishi and a Holden Astra.

The crash forced the closure of the highway's south-bound lane for about 12 hours.

Police have asked anyone with information about the incident or anyone who may have seen the vehicles involved before the crash to phone Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
