Crash on Echuca-Moama bridge

By Ivy Jensen

TRAFFIC was thrown into chaos in the twin towns after a three car collision on the Echuca-Moama bridge took more than an hour to clear.

Streets heading north-south in Echuca were heavily congested for about two hours as drivers were funnelled across the one lane left open on the bridge.

North of the border it was a similar story with traffic backing up along the Cobb Hwy to Perricoota Rd.

Two people were taken to Echuca Regional Health in a stable condition both with minor injuries and one with upper-body injuries.

Motorists are advised to avoid travelling across the bridge if at all possible to ease congestion.
