A truck driver has been killed in a fiery crash that has closed a section of the Hume Freeway in Victoria's north-east this morning.
Police said the B-double truck was travelling south on the freeway about 4.30am when the vehicle ran off the road, hit a tree and burst into flames just north of Violet Town. The male driver died at the scene. Police are investigating the cause of the crash.
VicRoads said the freeway's south-bound lanes had been closed between Benalla and Violet Town.
Southbound traffic is being diverted on to the Midland Highway at Benalla.
A VicRoads spokesperson said Melbourne-bound traffic should use the Midland Highway, Maroondah Highway and the Melba Highway, or the Midland Highway and the Goulbourn Valley Highway via Shepparton.
Drivers have been warned to allow extra travel time.
