Melbourne: Five cars and two trucks were injured in an accident along the Monash Highway around 7:30 a.m. this morning – eyewitnesses, first responders, and social media is amazed no one was seriously injured in the ‘pile-up’. An officer called it an ‘absolute vehicle’.

Local media covering the event shared images/videos of the accident site – two cards were seen sandwiched between two trucks, completely wrecked. Three people were taken to the hospital, but no one is seriously injured. Police believe a B-Double truck hit a car before striking four other cars and another B-Double truck. The collision, which happened near Forster Road at Notting Hill in Melbourne’s south-east, caused significant delays during peak-hour.

The highway has been re-opened inbound at Forster Road, however, speed has been reduced to 40 km/hr due to sand.
