Police appeal for witnesses to truck crash and fire

POLICE are appealing for witnesses to a three-vehicle crash and fire in Condell Park near Bankstown in NSW last night.

Just after 9pm, emergency services were called to reports a truck was travelling along Edgar St, when it hit two parked cars and caught on fire.

Initial inquiries have led police to believe the truck had swerved to avoid a collision with a white sedan travelling in the opposite direction along Edgar St, prior to the incident.

The white sedan failed to stop and now police are trying to track down the vehicle and driver.

Fire & Rescue NSW officers extinguished the truck fire a short time after it started.

The male driver of the truck was uninjured during the incident; however the truck was completely destroyed.

The two parked vehicles hit by the truck were unoccupied, and police have received no reports of injury.

Police officers attached to Bankstown Local Area Command attended and commenced investigations.

As investigations continue, police are appealing for any witnesses who have not yet spoken to police, as well as the driver of the white sedan, to come forward and contact Crime Stoppers.

Police are urging anyone with information in relation to this incident to call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or use the Crime Stoppers online reporting page:
