Trucks crash head-on in dust storm near Truro
Two trucks have crashed head-on near Truro and burst into flames.
The smash occurred on the Sturt Highway, about 6km east of Truro, just after 11.30am.
Emergency services are at the scene, but a dust storm whipped up by strong winds prevented access to the crash site.
A significant dust storm across the highway at the time of the collision restricted visibility for several kilometres.
One of the trucks was carrying a flammable load, 9 News reported, but it's not known how many people are involved in the crash.
