New England Highway closed in one direction between Muswellbrook and Singleton, with northbound motorists being diverted via Lemington Road

ONE person has been taken to hospital with minor injuries after a crash on the New England Highway at Ravensworth.

Emergency services were called to the scene near the intersection of the New England Highway and Hebden Road, between Muswellbrook and Singleton, about 11.30am on Wednesday, September 18, following reports two vehicles, one towing a caravan, had collided.

Hunter Valley Police District officers said a truck carrying a load of coal was also involved in the incident.

It is understood the truck left the road to avoid the accident, but remained upright.

Two NSW Ambulance crews were called to the scene and later transported one patient with minor injuries to Muswellbrook District Hospital.

The road has been closed in one direction, as emergency crews await a tow truck to help clear the way.

Northbound drivers are being diverted via Lemington Road and then the Golden Highway.
