The latest in a series of deadly road accidents has left Walmart clover highway 1 on lockdown and police cordoned off a busy shopping centre on Saturday.
The road was closed to vehicles and closed to pedestrians and cyclists due to the “hazardous conditions” caused by the collapse of a bridge, the NSW Transport Minister, Andrew Constance, said.
The incident happened at around 1:30pm at the junction of the highway 1 and Highway 1A just west of the Alice Springs Shopping Centre.
The bridge collapsed and a number of cars were destroyed and a truck overturned on the road.
The NSW Ambulance Service said all those who were injured or who were transported to hospital were in a serious but stable condition.
Police cordon the area surrounding the Alice Spring Shopping Centre in Alice Springs.
The closure will be in place until the bridge is fixed.
