VICTORIA Police will liaise with VicRoads over concerns regarding a bend at Flat Rock Hill just outside of Euroa, following the second caravan roll-over in a fortnight.

On Monday morning, Euroa police were called to a Hume Freeway location where a caravan had rolled over, blocking two of the north-bound lanes.

Euroa Acting Sergeant Natalie Jubb said the motorist towing the caravan attempted to overtake two B-double vehicles but once beside them, lost control with the van tipping on its side, stopping at the median strip.

The male driver of the vehicle, who was from Victoria heading towards NSW, was the only occupant and emerged unharmed.

No other vehicles were involved in the collision.

Act Sgt Jubb said the accident had a lot to do with wind turbulence at that bend.
