A Buchanan Transport truck carrying animals slid off the highway, got stuck and partially blocked the highway near Wallacetown yesterday afternoon.

A police spokesman said a call was made at 2.16pm advising the truck and trailer unit was stuck on the Wallacetown-Lorneville Highway.

The truck was pulled out by a dump truck while a tractor with bales pushed it out before Winton police arrived.
