The crash happened on Footscray Road about 5.10am.

The man, aged in his 30s, has non-life threatening back and pelvic injuries.

Two out-bound lanes are closed near the Tullamarine Freeway

The in-bound entry ramp to the Tullamarine Freeway is also closed.

Drivers should access the freeway from Dynon Road instead.

Meanwhile, the right-hand lane is blocked Altona-bound on the M80 Ring Road just after Tilburn Road due to a collision.
