UPDATE (4.58 PM)

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.


The learner driver, their supervising driver and the truck driver were taken to hospital with minor injuries.

VicRoads is warning drivers to allow extra travel time if using the road.

A VicRoads spokesperson said it is unclear when the lanes will be reopened.

“At this stage there is no indication how long the lanes will be closed,” the spokesperson said.
