A MAN is dead after a truck and motorcycle collided on the Hunter Expressway late Monday night.
Emergency services were called to a section of the highway at Buchanan about 11pm after the motorcyclist, believed to be aged in his 20s, died at the scene.
He is yet to be formally identified.
Early investigations suggest a Kawasaki motorcycle was eastbound when it left the roadway, hit a fence and came to rest on the road.
A semi-trailer following behind crashed into the motorcycle and rider.
Its driver, 39, escaped injury. Investigations into the crash are ongoing.
A report will be prepared for the information of the coroner.
Anyone with information is urged to call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
