© 9News A serious crash has caused major delays on South Australia’s South Eastern Freeway.

The front truck was carrying metal supplies and the second truck was towing another car.

The impact of the crash crushed the cabin of the second truck.

Police have confirmed the 77-year-old male driver from Bridgewater died at the scene.

The driver of the front truck was taken to the Royal Adelaide Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

Traffic was diverted away from the freeway at the toll gate, which created major delays towards the city.

Vehicles were backed up for kilometres on Portrush Road and Glen Osmond Road.

There were long delays on other nearby roads, as other drivers tried to make their way home or out of town to begin the school holidays.
