There was traffic chaos in Melbourne’s CBD this morning after King Street was closed when a car hit a support beam for a crane.

The incident prompted the closure of King between Finders and Collins Streets from about 4.15am until shortly after midday.

Police say the vehicle performed a U-turn on King Street when the driver lost control and crashed into the crane beam.

As a result, the footing of the beam was shifted about a metre.

The driver, a 23-year-old Dingley man,  was not injured.

Meanwhile, a broken-down bus in the Domain Tunnel caused delays for the Monash Freeway back to Burke Rd.

Those lanes were re-opened about 7.50am.
