POLICE called to a truck crash on the Hume Freeway at Wodonga yesterday morning were sure there would be injuries.
The B-double truck was on its side and spread across the freeway.
And the driver, a 45-year-old Shepparton man, was standing alongside it, much to the amazement of attending officers.
“There was not a scratch on him,” Constable Dimity Hinch said.
Constable Hinch said the truck, carrying household goods, was travelling north on the Hume when, at 2.30am, it drifted onto the median strip and rolled, completely blocking the north-bound lanes about 10 kilometres south of Wodonga.
The north-bound lanes were closed for 7½ hours to remove the truck from the freeway and clean up the debris left behind.
Traffic was being diverted along the Old Barnawartha Road.
Cardboard boxes containing marquees, washing detergent, batteries and other household items were picked up and placed on the back of another truck.
Constable Hinch said police were still investigating the cause of the crash.
