Four police officers have been killed following a collision in Kew, Victoria (Australia).
The multi-vehicle collision occurred on the inbound carriageway of the Eastern Freeway near Chandler Highway just after 17:30 hours local time on Wednesday 22nd April.
A spokesperson for Victoria Police said that the exact circumstances of the collision are still yet to be determined and that Detectives from the Major Collision Investigating Unit are still on the scene.
A male truck driver has been taken to hospital, but his injuries are believed to be non-life threatening.
A police source told Emergency Services News that initially a single police vehicle with two police officers on board had stopped a Porsche in order to speak with the driver.
Another police unit with two police officers was also called by the unit on the scene, in order to assist with traffic control.
Shortly after the 2nd police unit arrived on the scene, a lorry struck the vehicles. The driver of the Porsche managed to jump clear.
