A truckie has suffered severe leg injuries after his semi-trailer rolled over him on the M-1 on-ramp at Pennant Hills this morning.

The driver aged in his 60s is believed to have noticed brake problems, so he stopped and got out of the cabin to check out what the problem was when the semi rolled over him.

He’s believed to be in a serious to critical condition and has been taken to Royal North Shore Hospital.

Kristen Forbes from Transport Management says there are plenty of traffic issues in the area "southbound traffic on the M1 motorway is also very heavy from Cowan, significant delays are being experienced by those travelling southbound toward Sydney this morning - so please allow plenty of extra travel time and just exercise caution"
