A man has been arrested following a police pursuit in the Hunter Valley on Thursday morning. 

Shortly before 7am, officers received reports a white Holden Commodore travelling north on the New England Highway was being driven in a dangerous manner and crossing onto the incorrect side of the road.

Police located the vehicle and initiated a pursuit, about 5km north of the Liddell Power Station.

A short time later, the Commodore allegedly lost control and collided with a B-Double truck travelling southbound.

The 30-year-old male driver of the Commodore suffered minor injuries and has been taken to Muswellbrook Hospital under police guard for mandatory testing.

The driver of the truck – a 28-year-old man – was treated at the scene by NSW Ambulance paramedics for minor injuries.

The New England Highway has just been reopened, however heavy traffic remains – for the latest traffic information visit

Inquiries are continuing.
