The driver had been heading north on the Princes Hwy prior to the accident, that prevented V/Line trains running along the track for several hours and required coaches to be brought in to move passengers.

Police say they’ve spoken to the driver, and they’re continuing to investigate the incident.

Delays of up to 30 minutes continued on the rail line once trains returned after 5pm.
