Woman hurt in truck col­li­sion


A 54-YEAR-OLD Echuca woman was taken to Echuca hos­pi­tal with mi­nor in­juries af­ter a crash on the North­ern Hwy in El­more last Thurs­day.

Emer­gency ser­vices were called to the cor­ner of the North­ern and Mid­land high­ways about 11.30am.

The car the woman was trav­el­ling in col­lided side-on with a semi-trailer turn­ing right from Mid­land Hwy.

She was the only oc­cu­pant of the car.

One lane of the North­ern Hwy was shut while the clean-up oc­curred, with po­lice di­rect­ing traf­fic on the busy in­ter­sec­tion.

The truck driver walked away with no in­juries and no is­sues with the truck. He drove it back to its Shep­par­ton base.

Sergeant Paul Ni­coll of Cam­paspe High­way Pa­trol said the cor­ner was no­to­ri­ous for ac­ci­dents.

“We get a lot of traf­fic through the area here, in­clud­ing a lot of heavy ve­hi­cles,” he said.

“Driv­ers need to be care­ful. It is a 60km/h zone in this area and driv­ers just need to be on the look­out while driv­ing.”

A car and truck col­lided in El­more last Thurs­day.
