Monday, 27 March 2017 10:00:34 PM

Police have charged a man with an alleged domestic violence assault after responding to a crash on the Central Coast earlier today.

Just before midday (Monday 27 March 2017), police attended the Pacific Motorway near the Kariong on-ramp after a Nissan X-trail crashed into a stationary truck and hit the median strip.

Police were told a man in the Nissan began assaulting the passenger, a 36-year-old woman, before a passing truck driver stopped and went to her aid.

The 45-year-old man was held by witnesses until the arrival of police a short time later who placed him under arrest.

The woman was taken to Gosford Hospital where she was treated for minor injuries.

The man was taken to Gosford Police Station where he was charged with choking and negligent driving.

He was refused bail to appear at Gosford Local Court tomorrow (Tuesday 28 March 2017).

Police will allege the incident was domestic violence related.

Inquiries are continuing.
