Separate truck incidents wreak havoc for commuters
Two separate incidents involving trucks have wreaked havoc for commuters in Melbourne today.
For over two hours, Drivers on the Monash Freeway faced heavy delays after a B-Double truck caught fire near the Warrigal Road exit just before 11AM.
Caller Anna told Neil Mitchell the flames were erupting from the top of the truck at 10:50AM.
Luckily, the driver was unharmed.

Meanwhile, trains on the Craigieburn line between North Melbourne and Essendon have been suspended after a truck wedged itself under a bridge near Newmarket Station in Flemington.
The crash caused a power outage, affecting signals.
Buses are temporarily replacing trains.

Wonder how long the bloke that hit the bridge has been driving trucks??probably one of those driving school recruits, if so he needs a refresher course>!Steve Saturday 26 January, 2013 - 3:29 PM
went past that today traffic was slow i was in the far right lane a truck driver in the lane next to me decided he wanted to come into my lane didnt care i was there lucky there was abit of room to the right of me as i had to dodge him yet horn going off at him did he stop nooooo sick of truck drivers on the monash they are crazyluke Friday 25 January, 2013 - 6:47 PM
@Dan, I believe he is in the emergency lane. Probably parked, you can see the barrier right next to him.
@ tm. There is no emergency lane there. It's actually the right-hand running lane. There's only about three feet from the edge of the running lane to the concrete barrier. You can even see the traffic banked up behind him in his mirror.

With regards to the truck driver and the bridge...
I dont understand the problem.
