The Riddells Creek Fire Brigade were called to the scene of a nasty collision involving a ute and truck this morning on Kilmore Road between Yaamba Road and Mt Eliza Road.
Firefighters from Riddells Creek and Bolinda-Monegeetta were called to the accident just before 9.20am and joined forces with police, ambulance and SES personnel to treat the injured. Unfortunately one man died at the scene after a truck collided with the ute he was driving. A further car was also involved in the crash.
Kilmore Road was closed for almost 11 hours while Victoria Police personnel investigated the cause of the crash. CFA personnel also remained in attendance at the scene for the 11 hour period until the vehicles could be towed away at around 8pm. [Photo below courtesy of the Herald Sun]
