ring road crash

A multi-vehicle crash brought Western Ring Road to a standstill recently when a cattle truck collided with 6 cars, seriously injuring one motorist.

The collision led to all lanes of the busy Western Ring Road being closed after the horror crash left one woman fighting for her life at Alfred Hospital.

The road was closed for hours as emergency personnel worked to free the woman trapped in a Holden Barina and clear the wreckage.

The woman believed to be in her sixties, was trapped in the wreckage for almost an hour before being freed and airlifted to hospital.

Traffic was built up for 5km along the Ring Road from the Boundary Road exit at Laverton North to the Ballarat Road on ramp at Ardeer. Find out more
