Coast Digs Deep For Brooksy

Father of 2 died in M1 crash

Coast Digs Deep For Brooksy

Dash cam footage has shed further light on Tuesday morning's M1 crash that claimed the life of a Central Coast man.

49 year old father-of-two Al "Brooksy" Brooks was a front-seat passenger in a van that veered suddenly and slammed into the back of a truck that was stopped in the northbound breakdown lane at SOMERSBY.

He died at the scene.....while the 46-year-old driver continues to fight for life at Royal North Shore Hospital.

Footage broadcast by the Seven Network shows the green Ford panel van travelling in the far-right lane when what appears to be a catastrophic failure causes it to swerve severely to the left, straight into the prime mover.

Meantime, a GoFundMe page has been set up to support Mr Brooks' partner, Karen, and his two children.

It's already raised over 4 thousand dollars in less than a day.

The goal is 10.
