Police allege a garbage truck has collided with a ute towing a trailer in the early hours of Wednesday.
Emergency services were called to the corner of Sheraton Road and Birch Avenue at about 6.20am, where police say a dual cab was travelling in a southerly direction, when the garbage truck tried to enter the same lane, allegedly causing the collision.
As a result Sheraton Road was blocked for three hours while the scene was cleared, due to a mechanical issue in the truck.
During that time traffic was diverted.
It is believed no person was seriously injured, however the driver of the dual cab was treated after reports of soreness to his shoulder.
According to police the accident has been investigated and police would be taking action against the driver of the garbage truck for the crash.
Orana Mid-Western Local Area Command Acting Inspector Ken Brisbane has warned road users to take care, especially around intersections.
"We just need people to be conscious of their surroundings and to pay attention, not only the road rules and regulations but other drivers," he said.
"Especially in early mornings or rain, we just need to be conscious.
"Make sure you have a look for vehicles, motorbikes and cyclists."
