Two trucks collided on the Midland Hwy on Thursday as a result of a blown-out tyre.
One truck driver, a Melbourne man, 59, was taken to Bendigo Base Hospital with shoulder and elbow injuries.
The other driver, 31, was treated for shock at the scene.
Goornong police Officer in Charge Senior Constable Darren Scherger said it appeared the front right wheel of a cement mixer blew out as it travelled in the direction of Elmore.
He said the front part of the truck hit a refrigeration van side-on as it travelled in the opposite direction.
If the incident had happened a second earlier, the trucks would have hit head on, he said.
