UPDATE: River Road is now open.

Drivers are to be advised of a truck incident on River Road, Shepparton.

A 33-year-old Kyabram man was travelling west on River Road just before 11 am when he veered off the road.

The Kenworth truck that was carrying concrete pipes before it came to a halt, damaging a private driveway entry and fence.

‘‘He has just gone over the fog line and the weight of the truck has pushed him off the side of the road,’’ Shepparton Police Sergeant Trent Buscall said.

He said the driver would be checked over by paramedics.

‘‘There doesn’t appear to be any fatigue issues at this stage. He did get thrown into the steering wheel but definitely not something he will need to be admitted for,’’ Sgt Buscall said.   

He said it would take a couple of hours to clear the scene, however there would be no significant road closures.
