A substantial emergency response was triggered by a six-car crash on Nelson Bay Road near Seaside Boulevard at Fern Bay, creating notable traffic congestion and prompting calls for motorists to exercise patience and caution.

Incident Details
The collision occurred at approximately 6:30 am on Thursday, involving six vehicles in a chain-reaction crash. Emergency teams from NSW Ambulance, Fire and Rescue NSW, and NSW Police were swiftly on site to manage the situation and assess the condition of those involved.

Traffic Impact and Roadworks
The incident caused significant traffic delays, particularly as it coincided with late-finishing roadworks at the nearby Hexham Bridge, exacerbating the congestion. Traffic was notably backed up over the bridge, affecting morning commuters and local traffic flow.

Emergency Response and Assessments
Paramedics at the scene conducted thorough assessments of the individuals involved in the crash. Fortunately, there were no critical injuries, and no one required hospital transportation. The efficient response of emergency services played a crucial role in managing the scene and minimizing the impact on road users.

While the scene of the crash has been cleared, the incident serves as a reminder of the potential for unexpected delays and the importance of road safety awareness. Motorists are encouraged to remain vigilant, adhere to traffic rules, and be prepared for unforeseen circumstances on the road. As the community acknowledges the prompt action of emergency responders, it also reflects on the collective responsibility to ensure safety on the roads.
