Truck rollover at Buangor

UPDATE 4.15pm: The Western Highway remains closed at Buangor after this morning’s truck rollover. 

Police expect the road to re-open about 6pm.

EARLIER: Both lanes of the Western Highway at Buangor remain closed after a truck rolled early Sunday. 

Sergeant Bill Alford of Stawell said a B-double truck travelling west towards Adelaide lost control and rolled near the intersection with Colonial Road about 5.40am. 

The truck, carrying refrigerated goods including chicken and apples, has spilled its load and blocked both lanes of the highway. 

Sergeant Alford said with lesser visibility due to fog, a second vehicle crashed into the truck before emergency services had arrived on scene. 

Paramedics attended but no-one was seriously injured. 

Sergeant Alford said diversions would be in place for some time.
