Two drivers have escaped serious injury following a collision on a major highway north of Congupna, just after 5pm yesterday.
Emergency services attended the two-vehicle crash between a four-wheel drive and a tow truck on Goulburn Valley Hwy, with police diverting traffic at Katamatite-Shepparton Rd, and southbound traffic diverted on Reynolds Rd.
Police believe both drivers were heading north on Goulburn Valley Hwy when the incident occurred.
The female driver of the four-wheel drive was taken to a local hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, and the male driver of the tow truck was uninjured.
Shepparton police Sergeant Mark Washington said police had spoken to the male driver, and would wait until the female driver recovered before they interviewed her.
‘‘It’s extremely serious from what we could see, given the speed zone and amount of traffic travelling at that time of the day, it’s a very busy roadway,’’ Sgt Washington said.
‘‘It doesn’t matter what time of the day or night, people need to take care on the road and drive to the conditions.’’
Police are investigating the cause of the crash and are asking for witnesses to contact Shepparton police.
