Two road workers have been seriously injured in a fiery truck crash on the NSW Central Coast.

Emergency crews were called to the M1 motorway in Kangy Angy just before 4 am after reports a semi-trailer had crashed through a roadside worksite into two parked vehicles between Sparks and Wyong Roads.

    Judging from that fiery picture, it seems miraculous that no one was killed.

      Yes, the driver was able to escape through his cab window but the two roadside workers are still in intensive care at the John Hunter Hospital in Newcastle.
