Woman is stable after Midland Hwy accident

UPDATE 5pm: Goornong Leading Senior Constable Darren Sherger confirmed a 37 year-old Riddells Creek woman was lucky to be in the state she was.

After a rear tyre of the vehicle blew out the campervan travelled out of control for more than 100 metres in the direction of oncoming traffic.

She was travelling south on the Midland Hwy from Echuca to Bendigo.

The highway was closed for two hours as CFA cleared the leaking fuel.

Leading Senior Constable Sherger said she was lucky there was only minor traffic coming from the north.

He said it was important given the road toll the way it is for people to be reminded their tyres need to be of a roadworthy state.

Midland Hwy is no longer closed.
