West Gate Bridge: Shocking crash on Melbourne highway

Shocking crash on Melbourne’s most iconic bridge leaves victims sprawled on the highway – as the city is brought to a standstill

A major Melbourne highway is at a standstill after a horror crash left drivers lying on the road in need of medical attention. 

Police have closed four outbound lanes on the West Gate Bridge in Melbourne after the serious crash on Tuesday at 11:00 am. 

A Vinnies truck has rolled on its side blocking several lanes of traffic. 

‘There’s a number of individuals lying there being attended to by the public, because the ambulance and the police just can’t get through because the roads are entirely blocked,’ one witness told 3AW. 

Another driver travelling outbound said he saw a silver Ford speed past him ‘like a bullet’ on the bridge

‘He was driving like a mad man,’ the driver said. 

‘I thought to myself he won’t make it to the other side of the bridge.’ 

The caller said the silver Ford was involved in the crash with the Vinnies truck.

It is unclear how many people have been injured. 

Drivers have been urged to avoid the West Gate Bridge.
