Man dead and 14 injured in Sydney smash

A man is dead and 14 people are in hospital following a multi-vehicle smash that shut down a major highway southwest of Sydney.

Police say one man died at the scene after the truck he was in was involved in a crash along with five cars on the Hume Highway about 2.15pm.

Fourteen others had to be taken to hospitals at Liverpool, Campbelltown and Westmead, the NSW Ambulance Service said.

Among the most seriously hurt was a 55-year-old woman who was airlifted to hospital in a serious condition with pelvic, leg and chest injuries.

A one-month-old baby and two toddlers suffered minor injuries in the crash.

Southbound lanes on the Hume Highway were closed at Campbelltown about 7pm, with the Transport Management Centre (TMC) warning traffic remained heavy.

By late yesterday all lanes had reopened and traffic had returned to normal, the TMC said.
