A collision between a learner driver and a truck caused a fuel spill and closed both westbound lanes of the Princes Highway at Trafalgar this morning.

Victoria Police have told The Warragul Citizen a learner driver travelling east attempted to turn right off the highway into Anzac Road at 9.10 AM and collided with a westbound truck.

The truck hit the front of the car before continuing to hit a light post, spilling diesel fuel over the road.
