The driver ran over a guide wire on the ground in an alley, Ellis said. The truck pulled down the top part of the power pole after the guide wire had wrapped around the truck’s axle, Ellis said. Fire units requested assistance with APS crews to make sure the power to the guide wire was turned off, according to Ells.

The male rider, 34, died in Westmead Hospital after a crash on the M4 near the twin service centres at Eastern Creek, near Blacktown. Police said the man suffered critical injuries in the 7am collision with the truck. The motorway was closed citybound causing traffic to bank up for several kilometres. The lanes were not reopened until 9.25am. The death prompted a warning from Police Traffic and Highway Patrol Command for motoruists to slow down in the wet weather. Acting Assistant Commissioner Stuart Smith said motorists need to drive to the conditions. Already today we have seen a fatal crash and a number of serious incidents on our roads in the wet conditions, he said. Losing your life is a high price to pay for frustration in traffic, speeding to get to a destination, or taking rosks in the wet weather. Drivers should ensure they remain patient, slow down and provide plenty of room to other motorists on slippery roads. There have been 86 deaths on NSW roads this year, up from 72 at the same time last year.
