Two trucks and a car collided on the Hume Fwy late last night, leaving one driver dead.
Police are at the scene of the fatal collision, which took place three kilometres south of the Violet Town exit.
Investigators have been told a truck carrying fuel was headed north along the freeway at about 11pm last night when it jacknifed, rolled and tipped onto its side.
A short time later, a north-bound car crashed into the back of the truck.
The female driver of the car got out of a vehicle just before a second truck entered the scene and collided with the car and tanker.
The driver of the tanker died at the scene. The driver of the car and the second truck were not injured.
Fuel leaked from the tanker and emergency services have closed the Hume Fwy in both directions.
North bound traffic is being diverted along the Goulburn Valley Hwy and south bound traffic is being diverted through Violet Town.
Police believe that the freeway will be closed for most of the morning.
