Ballarat-Carngham Road is currently closed in both directions near Finchs Road, and power outages are currently affecting over 2,000 people in nearby suburbs.

Police will be on the scene for most of the morning as they piece together the cause of the collision, with Powercor to begin powerline repairs once the police investigation finishes.

VicRoads urges people to avoid the area where possible and follow the direction of emergency services.
