Craig pulled up his 45,000 litre Mount Franklin water tanker on the verge.
The driver involved in the accident, Greg Baker, had a lucky escape. His B-double semi-trailer was carrying a load of frozen chips when it crashed through the safety barriers of the Wingecarribee Bridge.

“I barged it once more and the door flung open. As I’m getting out the flames are coming up the side of the truck, the flames were everywhere. It’s a miracle I’m not singed,” he said.
