Sleepy driver blamed for five-car pile up on Sydney Harbour Bridge
A driver fell asleep at the wheel and crashed into a taxi causing a five-vehicle pile-up and traffic chaos on the Sydney Harbour Bridge this morning (25th February 2015)
A woman allegedly fell asleep at the wheel causing a five-car pile up on the Sydney Harbour Bridge.
Police confirmed the woman, thought to be in her mid-30s, dozed off before drifting her van into oncoming traffic just before 7am.
The crash immediately closed off four lanes of traffic as police and ambulance services arrived.
The crash created queues all the way back to the City West Link near Ashfield, the Gore Hill Freeway to Willoughby, past the Spit Bridge to the north and past the Gladesville Bridge from the north-west.
