M5 traffic chaos after fatal ute crash

City-bound motorists on Sydney's M5 motorway are being told to expect delays after a man was killed when his ute veered off the road, up an embankment and into a tree.

The man in his 30s died near the Henry Lawson Drive off-ramp, Milperra, earlier this morning, with one lane eastbound still closed at Heathcote Rd.
