The driver stopped the car out of safety concerns and emergency services were called.

NSW Police and Ambulance Victoria were on scene.

The bridge was closed initially, before re-opening with traffic directed around the scene.

Traffic was affected for just under an hour, causing grid-lock across the twin towns.
