Multi-vehicle collision on M4 in Sydney

A multi-vehicle crash on the M4 motorway in Western Sydney has resulted in major traffic delays.

A truck and four other vehicles collided, with one white car so severely crumpled it appears to have been cut in half.

Emergency services were at the scene of the crash just past Coleman St on the M4 near Merrylands.

A child is among two people injured in the crash.

They have been taken to hospital for treatment.

All eastbound lanes were closed, with drivers advised to allow extra time for traffic and delays.

Aerial images of the traffic show cars backed up for kilometres along the motorway.

The lanes were opened at around 4.30pm, but drivers are still being advised to allow extra travel time to pass the crash site.
