Emergency services attended the scene of a single-vehicle incident between Stawell and Deep Lead on Wednesday afternoon.
A truck carrying mixed cargo has veered off the Western Highway near Glenvale Road after 4pm.
The contents of the truck’s trailer spilled out onto the embankment next to the highway, creating a significant mess.
The driver of the truck has been cleared of any major injuries, but is believed to have sustained a minor foot injury.
SES, CFA, Victoria Police and Ambulance Victoria members attended the scene.
CFA district 16 operations officer Ian Morley said no fire was involved in the incident but about 400 litres of diesel was leaking from the truck to the side of the road.
“VicRoads and the EPA spent a fair bit of time cleaning it all up, they were out there for quite some time,” he said.
More to come.
