No sparks after Greta West crash

AN ADULT and three children were taken to hospital after their car collided with a truck yesterday.

Police said the car following behind crashed into the truck on McLeans Road in Greta West at 5pm after the truck slowed down to turn.

The force of the crash ruptured the truck’s petrol tank and caused petrol to spill onto the road.

“Due to the time of year and fire restrictions, there was a bit of concern about the petrol,” Wangaratta police said.

The road was closed while emergency services cleaned up.
