A NSW Ambulance spokesperson told Daily Mail Australia one of her legs is in danger of being amputated due to the significant nature of her injuries.

He said the woman had an open wound to her lower leg, but it could have been much worse. 

‘It is lucky it was not higher up, because that’s when it becomes life-threatening,’ he said.   

Lengthy traffic delays were experienced by drivers in both directions and city-bound traffic was banked up for 4.5km.

Police are investigating and urge anyone with information to come forward.
