YESTERDAY’S blast of wet weather led to a string of single-vehicle accidents across the south-west.
A 25-year-old man received non-life-threatening injuries when a tractor he was operating overturned while spreading fertiliser on a steep ridge along the Brucknell Road near Timboon about 11.30am.
It is understood he was working for a contractor when the tractor rolled about 80 metres down a slope.
Officers from WorkSafe are investigating the incident.
The driver was taken to Warrnambool Base Hospital with leg lacerations and possible head and neck injuries.
Meanwhile, a car rolled over on the Cobden-Lavers Hill Road near Gribbles Road at Jancourt while at Woorndoo a truck collided with a pole.
Mortlake and Lake Bolac police attended the accident scene.
Senior Sergeant Russell Tharle, of Warrnambool police, reminded all motorists to be aware and drive to the road conditions.
