Hi, I'm Grace Frost. I was honoured to report for the Review as their Digital Journalist from mid-2022 to the beginning of 2024. Ive since made a move to the Herald Sun.

The Melbourne-bound lanes of the Hume Freeway have been re-opened between Broadford and Wallan, following a truck rollover early this morning.

The truck rolled to its side at about 3.35am this morning on the Hume Freeway near Watson Street.

Victoria Police confirmed there were no injuries.

The rollover resulted in major traffic delays between Broadford and Wallan this morning, with the truck’s two trailers blocking multiple lanes. 

Melbourne-bound lanes of the Hume Freeway between Broadford and Wallan were closed after the incident, with crews working to recover the flipped vehicle.

All southbound traffic was directed to exit the freeway at Broadford, and then to travel through Kilmore and Wallan to return to the freeway via the Northern Highway.

As of 9am this morning, the prime mover had been successfully stood back on its wheels, but the two rolled trailers were yet to be recovered.

The lanes were reopened at 10.30am, with congestion quickly easing between Kilmore and Wallan.

The cause of the roll-over is yet to be determined and investigations remain ongoing.

The Department of Transport and Planning thanked drivers for their patience as emergency services conducted investigations and crews worked to re-open lanes.
