The main street of a historic country town in the NSW Hunter region has reopened after an out-of-control truck left it looking like a "war zone".

Singleton Mayor Sue Moore says emergency services worked through the night dismantling the truck and removing debris to ensure George Street could be reopened to traffic.

"It looks much better this morning than it did yesterday, and traffic is moving steadily through at a reduced speed," Ms Moore told AAP on Thursday.

The town's main shopping strip was left in "total carnage" after a stolen semi-trailer ploughed through the town, crashing into five cars and multiple buildings including the Royal Hotel, before bursting into flames just before 9am on Wednesday.

Eight people were injured, with four taken to hospital including a 67-year-old man, who remains in a serious but stable condition.

Ms Moore says residents of the picturesque township, with a population of 24,000, are still in "complete" shock.
