Several men were lucky to escape serious injury after a crash between two trucks on the Hume Hwy, south of the Goulburn Valley Hwy yesterday.
Seymour police Senior Sergeant Ralph Willingham said a broken axle had forced a Shepparton Cold Storage truck to stop on the side of the Hume Hwy, between the two Seymour exits.
He said the driver, aged in his 40s, had phoned a maintenance crew to assist and they had surrounded the truck with orange cones to work underneath the vehicle.
He said when the scene became too hot, the crew travelled to Seymour for refreshments.
It was during this time another truck, driven by a man in his 60s, and the stationery truck collided.
Sen Sgt Willingham said the driver of the stationery truck was sitting in the cab at the time of impact, but did not require hospitilisation.
The second truck was seriously damaged, but the driver received minor injuries.
Hildene Fire Brigade, SES from Seymour and Seymour Paramedics attended the scene.
Snr Sgt Willingham said he was ``amazed’’ no-one suffered critical injuries.
