VicRoads continues its inquiry

VICROADS is still investigating an incident where a vehicle carrying a tall load broke a powerline and caused a woman to go to hospital. 

The vehicle was travelling through Bridgewater to Sea Lake, from Ravenswood. 

It was being escorted by VicRoads Transport Safety Services and broke a service line and to other cables on Tuesday about 9.30am. 

A woman was taken to hospital after she touched a coffee machine in Bridgewater Bakehouse and received an electric shock. 

A permit was in place for the load and the vehicle was measured, and met the height limits prior to the start of the trip. 

A VicRoads spokesman said the investigation would continue. 

About 8300 Powercor customers in towns near Charlton were affected.
