The Murray Valley Highway will remain closed for a number of hours as police and contractors work to clean up a rolled B-Double that was transporting hay to fire-impacted properties.
Just after 12.30pm, the B-Double travelling towards Corryong rolled onto its side about 2.5 kilometres west of the Tallangatta township, near Bryants Gap Road.
The truck and more than 30 barrels of hay, which the male driver and his wife were delivering to the Upper Murray, blocked both lanes of the highway.
They were not trapped in the crash and have been taken to hospital without major injuries.
Tallangatta Senior Constable Ben Stewart said the couple, believed to be in their 50s, was from Ouyen near Mildura.
"We don't want to lose any of the hay so that it still gets to the farmers and those who need it - we've got tractors coming to get the hay off the road," he said.
"We can organise to get the hay on another truck and then we'll have heavy haulage come in to take the trailers and the prime mover.
"The best thing is they're both OK."
Traffic coming from Wodonga is being diverted down Kiewa East Road to join up with Bryants Gap Road, and traffic coming from Tallangatta is also using Bryants Gap Road.
Senior Constable Stewart said a number of trucks had come into the region transporting hay.
Investigations are continuing into the roll-over, which caused a diesel leak that the Tallangatta CFA contained.
"The weight may have shifted, we don't know, it looks like he's come off the road back at the bend - we'll retrace his steps," Senior Constable Stewart said.
The crash has resulted in damage to the fence which separates the highway and the High Country Rail Trail that runs from Wodonga to Bullioh.
The Murray Valley Highway has been closed in both directions, near Tallangatta, after a hay truck rolled on Wednesday afternoon.
The driver wasn't trapped after the incident, which occurred about 12.30pm near Bryants Gap Road, to the west of the Towong Shire town.
