Echuca man unscathed after his truck rolled near Kilmore during the week.February 14, 2014 4:33am
An Echuca truck driver walked away unscathed after his truck rolled near Kilmore on Wednesday.
The man was driving a truck full of scrap metal on the Epping-Kilmore Rd, after being diverted off the Northern Hwy because of fires, at 5.30pm when it rolled near the intersection of Mathiesons Rd.
Police believe shifting weight in the trailer caused the load to tip as the truck approached a bend.
The load of scrap metal scattered across the road.
Sergeant Warren Taylor said that while the accident caused quite a mess, it could have been worse.
‘‘We’re lucky that it is just the load that has spilled,’’ he said.
‘‘There was no petrol leak, nor did a fire start and after the events of this week, that was of concern to us.
‘‘It could have been far more damaging.’’
