Rowville crash: Truck collides with cars, Melbourne east, Wellington Road closed

A collision between a truck and two cars has closed a major road in Melbourne’s eastern suburbs.

The crash took place just before 9.30am on Wellington Road in Rowville, with the road now closed between Taylors Lane and Napoleon Road.

Emergency services are directing traffic and drivers are being urged to consider using Kelletts Road as an alternate route and to allow extra time to get to their destination.

Photographs taken above the scene show a white liquid covering the road beneath the three vehicles, with one of the cars flipped onto its roof.

Firefighters attended to assist with the rescue of passengers and found the truck was leaking diesel. Fire retardant was sprayed onto the ground to contain the spill.

Victoria Ambulance has been contacted for comment.
