Two trucks have collided on the Hume Fwy at Balmattum this morning.

The crash, which happened just before 4am, has left one of the trucks on its side. 

Emergency crews are working in foggy conditions to clear the scene, and the left side of the north-bound lane of the Hume Fwy, heading towards Benalla, is closed to traffic. 

A police officer at the scene said it is expected to be closed until at least lunch time.

VicRoads says the freeway is closed from the Hume Out-Euroa Main Ramp at Euroa to the Hume Out-Urmston Ramp at Violet Town.

Details on injuries to the drivers are unknown at this stage.
