A crash between two B-Double trucks has caused chaos in Sydney’s far south-west and left a 50-year-old driver trapped inside one of the vehicles.

Rescue workers were pictured desperately trying to free the man after the crash on the Hume Highway at Mount Annan near Campbelltown at 8.15am on Wednesday morning. 

He has since been released from the wreckage and taken to Liverpool Hospital with minor injuries, a New South Wales Police spokesman said. 

The driver of the second truck, a 26-year-old man, did not sustain serious injuries.

The injured driver is believed to have suffered non life-threatening neck and back pain.

One of the highway’s northbound lanes is still closed approaching Narellan Road following the collision near the Jim Affleck bridge, with motorists urged to allow extra travel time.  

Both northbound and southbound lanes were initially closed temporarily.

Northbound motorists heading towards Sydney have been told to divert their route and rejoin the highway further north
