Drug-affected truckie’s trail of destruction
A SEMI-TRAILER has allegedly left a path of destruction along Toorak Rd in Camberwell early this morning.
Emergency services were called about 3.30am after reports of downed power poles and destroyed rubbish bins.
A 44-year-old male truck driver from Clyde was arrested about a kilometre down the road and police say he retuned a positive oral drug test.
He is expected to be charged with drug driving and other offences.
Buses are replacing route 75 trams between Fordham Gardens and Vermont South.
Police have advised motorists to avoid the area until the clean-up has been completed and traffic is down to one lane.
