The driver of a sedan, a 23-year-old Rockbank woman, was uninjured and able to leave the vehicle.
The car remained on the tracks and was clipped by a Ballarat-bound V-line train a few minutes later.
Paramedics at the scene assessed 10 passengers on board the train and found they were uninjured. They took the driver of the sedan to The Alfred hospital for observation.
The driver of the truck, a 42-year-old Maddingley man, was uninjured. A police spokeswoman said the man had returned a positive result to a drug test and was assisting them with their enquiries.
Coaches are replacing trains between Wendouree and Southern Cross in both directions. V/Line said replacement coaches would travel between Wendouree and Sunshine and passengers would then be able to travel via metropolitan services between Sunshine and Southern Cross.
