Twelve car pile up causes M80 Ring Road chaos
A smash involving a dozen cars is causing major delays on the M80 Ring Road in Melbourne’s north-west.
The pile up on the EJ Whitten Bridge has forced the closure of three Altona-bound lanes.
The Department of Transport’s Chris Miller said the accident is “very significant”.
“One car is on it’s roof at the moment, and there’s a couple of trucks involved as well,” he told Neil Mitchell.
The two right lanes are still open, but drivers are urged to avoid the area if possible.
Three Altona-bound lanes are closed on the M80 Ring Road just before Sunshine Avenue due to a multi-vehicle collision. One car is on its roof. Emergency services are now on scene. Two right lanes remain open. Allow extra time. Consider alternatives. #victraffic pic.twitter.com/uUqWyuHsuf
